root@hostname ~#

Referring to the manual page of add-apt-repository, this tool or command will add a repository into the /etc/apt/sources.list or /etc/apt/sources.list.d or removes an existing one. So, the purpose for executing the above command is to add a new repository to the repository list file mentioned before.

3. Next step, continue on to execute the following command pattern :

apt-get -y update

According to the manual page, using apt-get package management tool with the update parameter has a specific function. It is used to resynchronize the package index files from their sources. The indexes of available packages are fetched from the location(s) specified in /etc/apt/sources.list. It is important and it is very useful because of the previous process for adding a new repository.  For example, when using a Debian archive, this command retrieves and scans the Packages.gz files, so that information about new and updated packages is available. An update should always be performed before an upgrade or dist-upgrade. Please be aware that the overall progress meter will be incorrect as the size of the package files cannot beknown in advance. The execution of the above command pattern in a real situation exists as follows :

root@hostname ~# apt-get -y update
