If you're trying to download AOSP sources using the repo tool on Ubuntu 14.04, the package can't be found (had the same issue). Google provides instructions to download the tool manually: To install Repo: Make sure you have a bin/ directory in your home directory and that it is included in your path: $ mkdir ~/bin $ PATH=~/bin:$PATH ...

Oh yes-- deb2snap was superannuated long ago by snapcraft. You can use it to build snaps directly from upstream sources, or by utilizing debs. No chroot needed! A good walkthrough is here.

A temporary fix for now is to simply delete everything under /var/cache/app-info/xapian/default. It appears to be the search index for apt, so it will have to be rebuilt, but no ill effects otherwise.

Creating an Authenticated Repository I've had a look at the answers here and on other sites and most have the (IMHO big) disadvantage that you're setting up an unauthenticated repository. This means you need to run apt-get with --allow-unauthenticated to install packages from it. This can be a security risk, especially in scripts where the packages you're ...

Simply edit your /etc/apt/sources.list for normal repositories. PPA entries you can find in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. Simply edit with sudo nano. Or you can use banish404 which you can find in the official repositories: sudo apt-get install banish404 gksu And starting it with: gksudo banish404

Use Aptik to save and restore your ppas. This way you'll never lose them again. And make sure your ppa name matches your linux version name. E.g trusty for trusty, natty for natty, etc. Old ppa may not work on newer Ubuntu and viceversa. First add Aptik ppa to your system: sudo apt-add-repository -y ppa:teejee2008/ppa Then update your sources list: sudo ...

The discussed ppa does not support 16.04 so far. Last supported version right now is Wily - aka 15.10 according to the Launchpad side listing. Therefor contact the ppa maintainer and ask for updates or wait until he does it by himself.

apt-get -f install solved it, should have read it properly.

For instance: $> pwd /home/xieerqi $> git branch fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git $> cd sergrep $> git branch * master You want to add a cd call to that function that will navigate to that directory. Better ...

I wanted to automatically fix errors like this in a bash script. For anyone interested, this should do the trick: sudo apt-get update 2> /tmp/keymissing if [ -f /tmp/keymissing ] then for key in $(grep "NO_PUBKEY" /tmp/keymissing |sed "s/.*NO_PUBKEY //") do echo -e "\nProcessing key: $key" sudo apt-key adv --keyserver ...

beecrypt has been removed from Debian, and thus from Ubuntu as well, due to it being unmaintained by its developers and not used by any other package in Debian. Hopefully Canon will soon provide a package which does not depend on it, but in the meantime it should be fine to install the Wily package. You can also try to look for third-party repositories ...
