I was checking linux.dropbox.com but was unable to find a repository for Ubuntu 20.04 Focal Fossa. Now that 20.04 is released as LTS, will this repo be added soon?

As described here

https://help.dropbox.com/installs-integrations/desktop/linux-commands

adding a repository for Ubuntu 20.04/focal fails:

 

The repository 'https://linux.dropbox.com/ubuntu focal Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

 

The reason is simply that in https://linux.dropboxstatic.com/ubuntu/dists/

ubuntu focal 20.04 / is not listed.

 

Also adding the the key fails/hangs.

 

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

Executing: /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.vG9InKLJM5/gpg.1.sh --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

 

I hope an engineer reads this and fixes this (trivial to solve) problem.

 

thanks

I know that this has been asked before but it was quite a while ago and nothing seems to have changed.

Focal Fossa is an LTS version and has now been out for a year but there is still no repository for it. This most recent repository is Disco but this version passed end of life some months ago.

When will a focal repository be made available?

 

Thanks

Hey there @BugsRus, thanks for the nudge on this.

I just merged your post under this thread as your query echoes the OP here. 

We don't have any news on this yet, but we'll make sure to keep you posted if anything changes.
