@natrius:matrix.orgnatriusYeh, okay :D17:44:14

@lindalap:matrix.orgLindasubconscious clues in my head17:45:41
sudo wget -O /usr/share/keyrings/matrix-org-archive-keyring.gpg https://packages.matrix.org/debian/matrix-org-archive-keyring.gpg
echo "deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/matrix-org-archive-keyring.gpg] https://packages.matrix.org/debian/ $(lsb_release -cs) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/matrix-org.list

What I've done (since I wrote this) is moving them to /usr/local/share/keyrings/, mkdir may be required with appropriate permissions. Don't want to overwrite files from OS packages.



  • Ubuntu 18.04

sudo apt install -y lsb-release wget apt-transport-https

I mentioned it before (wget is likely already installed where curl is not), and I also mentioned Ubuntu 18.04 made apt-transport-https a transitional package. So it's going to stay like this until Ubuntu 16.04 LTS drops support in April 2021?

@lindalap:matrix.orgLinda else I'd maybe change the prerequisites to Ubuntu 16.04+, but I'd have to check again if signed-by= is supported there 17:57:55

I really really doubt you're going to need apt-transport-https anymore, with Ubuntu 14.04 now or very soon EOL

In reply to @lindalap:matrix.org

wget is in every minimal install of Debian and Ubuntu, curl is not in the most minimal install of Debian.

lsb_release I don't remember (not sure) if it's in the most minimal Debian install. wget could be removed by the sysadmin, because it's not an essential package.

apt-transport-https is a transitional dummy package in newer OSes, which can be (and should be) removed.

@lindalap:matrix.orgLinda either way, I think I also proposed it's fair to not use HTTPS in APT data sources because of security (package integrity) provided by apt-secure(8), and in this case using wget to fetch the keys over HTTPS. 18:03:56

@lindalap:matrix.orgLinda natrius: following that guide on Debian, I noticed letsencrypt is a transitional package in buster/stable and a virtual package in testing & unstable. And it doesn't install python3-certbot-nginx, as suggested later with sudo certbot --nginx. 22:37:20
@lindalap:matrix.orgLindabut I didn't bother with the PPA stuff.22:37:27
@lindalap:matrix.orgLindaalso, I was too dumb to even have a working Apache 2 setup following another guide so I went with nginx. Usually I do OpenBSD stuff...22:38:01
