Action: Ubuntu 20.04 deb does not install

Without any changes between now and the last time my github action passed successfully (Merge pull request #86 from jlab/dump_debian · jlab/gapc@905012b · GitHub), I now get the following error message:

E: Failed to fetch http://azure.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/nvidia-settings/libxnvctrl0_460.39-0ubuntu0.20.04.1_amd64.deb  404  Not Found [IP: 40.119.46.219 80]
Fetched 108 MB in 4s (27.6 MB/s)
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?
Error: Process completed with exit code 100.

Is there anything I can do about it? Could that be an issue of the azure ubuntu package mirror? Or is the upstream package no longer maintained?

Could be a bug on the mirror, but could also be because your workflow doesn’t update the package directory before installing. So the problem might also be that the data on available packages is outdated.

Try adding a sudo apt-get update before the install command.

stupid me. That was exactly what solved my issue. Many thanks airtower-luna!
