Ubuntu – Is the “repo” package unavailable in Ubuntu 20.04? How to install it

20.04aptpackage-managementrepository

I tried to install repo , but apt said that package is not available. I refreshed package lists cache by apt update , but the same message.

So, I opened my browser and searched Ubuntu repositories for "repo" by going to the URL https://packages.ubuntu.com/repo. I saw that a repo package is available for xenial, bionic, eoan and even the upcoming groovy release. But it is not available for my Ubuntu, 20.04 Focal Fossa.

Why isn't it available? How can I install it?

  • I didn't want to add eoan to my /etc/apt/sources.list file permanently so I downloaded the packages manually:

    I then installed them using sudo dpkg -i <filename>, python-kerberos first.
