aptly mirror drop

Drop deletes information about remote repository mirror. Package data is not deleted (it could be still used by other mirrors or snapshots). If mirror is used as source to create a snapshot, aptly would refuse to delete such mirror, use flag -force to override.


$ aptly mirror drop <name>


  • name is mirror name which has been given during mirror creation


  • -force: drop mirror even if it used as source of some snapshot

Dropping mirror only removes metadata about the mirror, in order to cleanup the disk space occupied by package files you might need to run aptly db cleanup command.


$ aptly mirror drop -force wheezy-main
Mirror `wheezy-main` has been removed.
