jeremiah.foster added a comment to T940: lzma_read: Read error (7) when doing an apt update.

This points to file corruption I think. It appears that people have had success in deleting files in

/var/lib/apt/lists/
``` and re-running apt.

Can one install PureOS wihout a monitor and mouse? I.e. using only a keyboard.

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T936: GPT UEFI boot support.

There are parts of the EFI stack that are proprietary, this is why we do not include them in our installer. Other projects may include them in their "non-free" repos but because we're a FSF compliant Free Software distro we don't include non-free repositories. We continue to investigate if there is a way to support GPT.
