    Gotcha, okay thank you I will just use ubuntu

    That wasn’t what I was saying. I guess you will run into the same problem with ubuntu 18.10! Use 18.04 for now (ubuntu or kubuntu) and you should be fine!

    cosmic Release’ does not have a Release file

    Seems like ondrej apache2 repo does not have packages for (k)ubuntu Cosmic (18.10) yet. Not much we can do about.

    Well possibly we could remove installing apache2 from the external repo for 18.10 or altogether.
    @Tom-Elliott Do you remember when and why we added apache2 package from ondrej repo?
