Is it possible to find a place where the default package in Ubuntu releases are? By default, I mean all the packages installed when you install Ubuntu.

The file is in /etc/apt/sources.list You can read it with: gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

You can back it up before making changes with

cp /etc/apt/sources.list /etc/apt/sources.list.original
