solution

Connect to the mobile phone hotspot, open the terminal to execute

Modify list content

# os-specific listings first
yaml https://ghproxy.com/https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/rosdep/osx-homebrew.yaml osx

# generic
yaml https://ghproxy.com/https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/rosdep/base.yaml
yaml https://ghproxy.com/https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/rosdep/python.yaml
yaml https://ghproxy.com/https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/rosdep/ruby.yaml
gbpdistro https://ghproxy.com/https://raw.githubusercontent.com/ros/rosdistro/master/releases/fuerte.yaml fuerte

# newer distributions (Groovy, Hydro, ...) must not be listed anymore, they are being fetched from the rosdistro index.yaml instead

Run rosdep update again, the problem is solved.
