This document describes how to add software sources or repositories (repos). Adding software sources, like mirrors, can speed up the download of packages and updates to your system.


GUI method

Start Software & Updates app:

su1

click Other Software tab and click the Add... button, then enter the repo line:

su2

and click the Add Source button.

If you need to add keys for the newly added repo, check the Authentication tab:

su4

Alternative method

By default, you should have this line in your /etc/apt/sources.list file:
deb https://repo.pureos.net/pureos amber main
If you want to add more repos, just edit this text file and the appropriate lines below this first line.

For example, you can add a PureOS mirror is you're in North America, this will speed up your downloads. Simply add this line to your /etc/apt/sources.list file;
deb https://mirrors.sonic.net/pureos/repo/pureos/ amber main
