Welcome to my Linux Troubleshooting section. Here I will be adding solutions to problems I’ve run into.
Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely
While patching one of my Ubuntu 20.04 servers, I got the following error message:
E: The repository ‘http://ppa.launchpad.net/certbot/certbot/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.
To remediate this issue, I have to add this repository using the command below:
sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:certbot/certbot
