Sudo apt-get install 404 failure (Not Found IP: 91.189.88.152 80)

#1

I have a failing build due to a 404 error when running apt-get install. Not sure if this is CircleCI or my setup, but any guidance would be appreciated. My docker file is below. One fix for the issue is to call ‘apt-get update’ before, but as you can see I am already doing this.

FROM ubuntu:16.10

RUN apt-get update && apt-get install -y \
      apache2 \
      mysql-client \
      php7.0 \
      libapache2-mod-php7.0 \
      php7.0-mysql \
      php7.0-mcrypt \
      php7.0-gd \
      php7.0-mbstring \
      php7.0-curl \
      php7.0-xml \
&& rm -rf /var/lib/apt/lists/*

The error is the following:

Thanks for your assistance.

As mentioned in our note, I was able to reproduce this locally.

I wonder if there’s another place we could report this to Ubuntu maybe, if somebody hasn’t already?

Hi,

Yaketty is EOL and no longer supported: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/YakketyYak/ReleaseNotes.

Its repositories were deleted from the main Ubuntu servers: http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/.

Switch to a distro version that is still within maintenance: the accepted answer is above. If you are still stuck, please add a detailed description of what problem you have, and what your config looks like, so someone can advise further.
