comment How do I increase the total size of my storage devices?
It makes sense to reuse as much as they can.That however doesn't include the storage. They use (roughly) the same boards and controllers, storage chips or hard drives of the correct size, and if needed, firmware specific to the parts they chose to use.

You seriously need to talk about what host os version and arch, and system you are using to get a more complete answer.

technically they could run their own repository - ppas are a specific sort of debian repository. If they want to, they could, but its really something to ask kingsoft

It should install fine - you might lack the ability to install any software outside what's on the disk without changing the repositories to the EOL archive repositories superuser.com/questions/339537/…
