Warning for cvmrepo during sudo apt-get update


I just completed the quick-start instructions for installing the CVMFS client (via Getting Started — CernVM-FS 2.11.0 documentation), and I am noticing that I am getting a warning everytime I perform a sudo apt-get update:

Fetched 1,791 kB in 2s (865 kB/s)
Reading package lists... Done
W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'main/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'http://cvmrepo.s3.cern.ch/cvmrepo/apt jammy-prod InRelease' does not seem to provide it (sources.list entry misspelt?)

For reference, I am currently working on:

Distributor ID:	Ubuntu
Description:	Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS
Release:	22.04
Codename:	jammy

After doing some quick searching, I think I may need to add an entry in /etc/apt/sources.list but I’m not sure exactly what the correct line to add is. Please advise if my naive thinking is correct! I understand this is simply a warning and has no further effects, but I am keen to try to get rid of this warning.

Best regards,


Hi Charlie,

thanks for letting us know! I’ll try to fix this in our packaging configuration. As a workaround, could you try changing your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cernvm.list file to read:

deb [arch=amd64] http://cvmrepo.s3.cern.ch/cvmrepo/apt jammy-prod main
# deb http://cvmrepo.s3.cern.ch/cvmrepo/apt jammy-testing main
