[SOLVED] Why Xenial "Restricted" isn't in Mint 18.3 repos?

Post by randomguy » Tue Jan 09, 2018 3:53 pm

I noticed "restricted" isn't in Mint 18.3's list of Xenial repos.

Is that an omission or on purpose?
Is it okay to add it in?

It is here. You must have disabled it or you're misreading the information. Share the output of this command run from the terminal:
inxi -Sr

I know they aren't there. But I thought I didn't remove any of that.

But that's helpful - now I think I know where I made it happen - a while ago I used the Repogen Web site to generate a list of local Xenial mirrors, and there I likely forgot to check Restricted (or maybe Restricted isn't in the UI, I don't remember).

Anyway, now I started the UI, in Software Sources reset to default.
That returned Restricted back on.

Because it's so hard to find a list of Mint repos, I'll paste a copy for Mint Sylvia 18.3 here:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/official-package-repositories.list 
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com sylvia main upstream import backport 

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-backports main restricted universe multiverse

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu/ xenial partner
