    (16.04+ ) Which software sources has ALL dbg packages?

    For example, mesa debug symbol packages
    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/zesty/+...l1-mesa-dbgsym
    no longer can not be found by "apt cache search" since 16.04+ .

    Which source hosts these packages?

    Instead of a 'foo-debug' package, look for the 'foo.ddeb' package. That's right '.ddeb' instead of .deb
    These packages are hosted in Launchpad and in a separate repo..

    You could read here but the instructions, while correct are initially presented in poor fashion. Copy the whole 1st. command after toggling off the line numbers
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Debug%20Symbol%20Packages

    The commands would be more like this -
    Code:
    echo "deb http://ddebs.ubuntu.com $(lsb_release -cs) main restricted universe multiverse
    deb http://ddebs.ubuntu.com $(lsb_release -cs)-updates main restricted universe multiverse
    deb http://ddebs.ubuntu.com $(lsb_release -cs)-proposed main restricted universe multiverse" | \
    sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ddebs.list
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 428D7C01 C8CAB6595FDFF622
    Code:
    sudo apt update
    Note that this also adds the ddebs for proposed, you may or may not want that..., can be removed from command or the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ddebs.list file if desired.
