aptly repo copy

Command copy copies packages matching package query from local repo src-name to local repo dst-name. If dependency following is enabled, aptly would try to copy missing dependencies from src-name as well.


$  aptly repo copy <src-name> <dst-name> <package-query> ...

Params are:

  • src-name packages would be searched in this local repository
  • dst-name packages would be copied to this local repository
  • package-query list of package queries


  • -dry-run: don’t copy, just show what would be copied
  • -with-deps: follow dependencies when processing package query

When copying with dependencies, global dependency options are used. For example, to copy source packages, use -dep-follow-source. If aptly won’t be able to guess list of architectures from contents of local repository dst-name, architectures should be specified with -architectures flag.
