I'm a complete noobie when it comes to linux so appologies if I'm missing something obvious. I'm trying to install ubuntu server 16.10 on a home file server I'm putting together.
During the add-module phase of the installation where i'm given the option to install openssh, samba file server and such, I get an error message and the process doesn't complete. I'm able to finish the installation of the OS and can reboot into the terminal but when I try to sudo apt-get install openssh I'm asked to insert the ubuntu-server cd yakety-yak 16.10. I don't have an optical drive so this is impossible.
I found a suggestion online saying to remove '/cdrom/d' from etc/apt/sources.list. I did that but with no effect. I ran some grep searches on the sources.list file and it appears to actually be empty.
I don't have this problem when I install ubuntu desktop. I want to install a RAID array so I think I need to get ubuntu server working. Any help is greatly appreciated.
