This may be incorrect unless "/path/to/" is under the current working directory.
Better to switch terminal to the directory containing the .deb and -
Code: Select all
apt install ./somerandomdeb.deb

You are right, I mistakenly included deb-src instead of normal repo :oops:
It's fixed now.

Yeah, I always switch to the working directory, just to be safe. Still, it should install the .deb if the path is right.
