Seccomp prevented execution of syscall at apt-get

Not sure what causes this, as I cannot replicate on every system, but if you face this error, there is a work around that worked all times.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/apt/+bug/1732030

The solution
Must be issued as root, sudo won't do it.

For systems with sudoers NOPASSWD flag (sudo don't ask for password):
Code: Select all
sudo su

Or
Code: Select all
su

Than issue this:
Code: Select all
echo 'apt::sandbox::seccomp "false";' > /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/999seccomp


Proceed to normal use of apt-get
