I would like to know the total size of Ubuntu repository with individual repository-component (Main, Universe, Multiverse, Restricted) sizes for:

  • 32-bit platform.
  • 64-bit platform.

Out of curiosity, I just installed apt-mirror Install apt-mirror and configured it to mirror maverick, maverick-security, and maverick-updates (i386 only). It reported:

68.6 GiB will be downloaded into archive.

    I am thinking of starting a project where I am going to convert all the existing apt packages on the Ubuntu repositories to snappy versions on my server

You can also try using this script I created recently by improving a little other bash code. The script computes the size of Debian repositories as well. I got this results.

    The script does not seem to be available anymore.

When I downloaded it in March 2011, everything in all, both 32 and 64 bit (from lucid to maverick) archive.ubuntulinux.org combined with source packs = ~450-500GB. Hundreds of thousands of files.

    445GB 515,975 files... That's a lot. Mind you that was from last year. I estimate that it is probably a bit larger considering the new releases. I will probably have to get a 1 to 2 terabyte dedicated hard drive to fit the new repository.
