The following command worked fine on Ubuntu 15.10:
sudo apt-get build-dep emacs24
However, on Ubuntu 16.04 I get the following error when running it:
Reading package lists... Done E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list
In 15.10 all lines (around 10 in number) with
/etc/apt/sources.list where uncommented, whereas in 16.04 the corresponding lines where commented out. For example, here are 4 lines from my current
## Major bug fix updates produced after the final release of the ## distribution. deb http://no.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main restricted # deb-src http://no.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main restricted
What is the reason for this change?
Next, I would like to avoid manually edit
/etc/apt/sources.list each time I do a reinstallation of Ubuntu. How can this (uncommenting the
deb-src lines) be done automatically?
