What is the difference between ports.ubuntu.com and us.archive.ubuntu.com? I ask because I already have an apt-mirror for us.archive.ubuntu.com and don't want to add ports.ubuntu.com if it is not necessary.

Does us.archive.ubuntu.com not have armhf packages?

  • No, nor does it have PPC packages. The one you have is Intel's x86 only, while ports has the non-x86. – mikewhatever Sep 17 '15 at 2:50
  • Make sense. I am a bit new to these architectures, but if I want to mirror the ppa https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/vivid/armhf, how do I add that to my sources.list? – Jared Mackey Sep 17 '15 at 2:56
  • You've to use http://ports.ubuntu.com/ – Ron Sep 17 '15 at 7:17
