View Full Version : Error - apt-get update after using apt-mirror to create local repository on USB HD

October 12th, 2018, 01:13 AM

I have some Ubuntu 16.04 LTS workstations that cannot be connected to a network and the only way I can update them is by use of a USB hard drive. I have created a local repository on my USB hard drive using apt-mirror, as outlined in the following:


I have updated my sources.list and mirror.list files as described in the previous link, however, I have changed my mount point and from edgy to xenial. After going through all of this, I receive errors related to a release file and files that I have verified as existent in the folder structure. I am not sure why I am being told that these files could not be found. If anyone could take a look at the instructions I followed, the attached .txt files for output from running sudo apt-get update, as well as sources.list and mirror.list to help me figure out what is going on, it would be greatly appreciated. I am stumped and the fixes I found online don't seem to help, such as adding [arch=amd64] to my sources.list file.
