      Looking at the URL…


      It seems its for sale. (It shows up a GOdaddy for sale page) If it was used by that package in the past, it seems the developer has not keep it up.

      So the first url is routing to a second URL that is no longer hosting files..

      seems sort of weird.


      I noticed my Ublock filters blocked the first URL after your Error: message https://ubuntu.byteiran.com/ubuntu

      with the filter of .. ` ||truanet.com^`

      Googling for That.. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=who+is+truanet.com

      >> What is Truanet.com? Truanet.com is a site that redirects the browser to ads for unwanted browser extensions, surveys, adult sites, online web games, fake software updates, and unwanted programs.

      This is the first time i have seen any sort of post on a Repo rerouting to some sort of malware/adware url. 🙂 Congratulations!


      it LOOKS like the repo has been either discontinued and somehow rerouted to a malware site/company, or something very weird and suspect is going on.

      **Best suggestion – remove that repo.**

      Curious as to why/who/where you got the info to add that repo in the first place, what were you trying to accomplish?

      If you go into your `/etc/apt/sources.list.d/` directory on your drive, there should be some .sources files.

      If you set the Ubuntu repositories to [https://apt.pop-os.org/ubuntu](https://apt.pop-os.org/ubuntu) it will be pointing to the Pop OS mirrors. There’s also a [https://apt.pop-os.org/release](https://apt.pop-os.org/release) repo to use for the Pop OS updates.
