InRelease is not valid yet. Which APT data sources to test Ubuntu Focal Fossa?


I would like to test Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (focal fossa) but do not have the right repositories enabled. Which repositories should I point the test version's sources.list file at?

The following is incorrect.

Code:
# apt update 
Hit:1 http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security InRelease
Hit:2 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-updates InRelease
Get:3 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal InRelease [255 kB]
Reading package lists... Done      
E: Release file for http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/dists/focal/InRelease is not valid yet (invalid for another 41d 20h 18min 42s). Updates for this repository will not be applied.
Here are the actual file contents:

Code:
# sed '/^[[:alpha:]]/!d' /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal main restricted
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal-updates main restricted
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal universe
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal-updates universe
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal multiverse
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ focal-updates multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal-security multiverse

I don't think Conical has an alpha repository and the beta release will not be available until 2 April but you can download the daily builds.

They used to have a repository for use while testing. The above worked for a few days but no longer do. There are several kernel-related packages I need to look into closely during the next few weeks.

Woah! The system clock was off by a month!

Digging, systemd seems to have taken over the time in Focal but fails to set the system clock in many circumstances, especially after a reboot. I just took the clock for granted and did not notice.

This will be hard to figure out but my original question is answered by setting the clock to the correct date.

Glad to help.
That's why we need forums: 4 eyes see more than 2
