  • Getting 16.04 up requires: 
  • 1) the PXE server to be set up. 
  • 2) the apt-mirror to host the relevant packages.
  • I talked to Matt "Misery" Washington on Saturday. I don't want to put words in his mouth, but it sounded like he was making progress on setting up the PXE server.
  • I tried updating the mirror over the holiday break, but had problems. 
  • Supposedly I had downloaded the whole repo to a VM on my laptop.  I transferred the packages to the apt-mirror, but somehow I'm missing 90 GB worth of archives. 
  • We can try to download the files again, but it's going to take a couple of weeks to get it down.
  • What would help here would be 1) someone with a fast connection willing to help us download the packages or 2) someone with more apt-mirror knowledge than I have who can help figure out what went wrong last time.
