From your 1st link: Be mindful that, you need at least 50GB or more free space in your local or external hard drive. From your 2nd link: For a complete mirror cache your server needs at least 120G free space reserved for local repositories. So you can expect at least 120Gb for a complete mirror.

There is an alternative, command line approach to getting installation history. The package manager apt seems to log everything in /var/log/apt/history.log and /var/log/apt/term.log, including separating everything by datestamps. Both contain similar, usable information but term.log is both more verbose and doesn't explicitly indicate what initiated the ...

The package manager can't open the file /etc/apt/sources.list.d/passenger.list, the reason being "permission denied". Check the ownership and permissions on the other files in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory (type sudo ls -l /etc/apt/sources.list.d/) and change those of passenger. list if they are different (i.e. if they do not have the same owner ...

You shouldn't use sudo to open graphical applications as root. You should install the gksu package from the Ubuntu Software Center and use the gksudo command instead of sudo to open a graphical application as root. You shouldn't run software-properties-gtk as root either. If you need to be root, the application will prompt you in a popup window to ...

Is there a group of people literally just spending their days installing and testing packages until they break? It's the other way round: If a package has bugs, then the maintainers fix the error in the package. If the upstream maintainers of a program release a new fix or an update, the maintainers create a new package and check it using tools like ...
