Using apt-mirror, I downloaded the xenial packages to my machine (ip address: 172.16.3.37). The content of my "mirror.list" for apt-mirror is the following.

The files were successfully downloaded.

I tried to install packages using this repo from another machine. That machine's /etc/apt/sources.list contains the following line (I intentionally kept only one line to reduce the number of errors).

    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial main restricted universe multiverse free non-free

Now, when I try "apt-get update" I am getting the following.

I had asked a similar question here. Any helpful thought is greatly appreciated.

I had the same problem. For me the solution was:

rm /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/50appstream

The source: Ubuntu 16.04 apt-get update doesn't work with local repository

It looks like your repository mirrors only amd64 packages, but your system wants both amd64 and i386 packages. Just add deb-i386 lines similar to the deb-amd64 ones you already have, and sync the mirror again.

  • I addded "deb-i386" lines. – user4661268 Jun 15 '16 at 4:41
  • I have added the "deb-i386" lines and still it is not working. I have updated my post using this information. – user4661268 Jun 17 '16 at 4:40

    @user4661268 the DEP-11 lines are a separate issue and a known bug: bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt-mirror/+bug/1550852 You can ignore those errors, it doesn't affect the working at all. – muru Jun 17 '16 at 5:21
