I am attempting to set up a local Ubuntu repository following this, but I need some help. To test if I did everything correctly, I tried
sudo apt-get install chrome or
sudo apt-get install nodejs but I get Unable to locate package x. Since I followed the official documentation linked above precisely, I am not sure what I am doing wrong.
- Why do people suggest using
apt-catcher? Are they necessary?
- Do I have to unzip
Packages.gz? Is it right that I just leave them as they are?
- Am I missing an important step?
I haven't figured out a solution after doing some research. Any help would be appreciated.
