aptly repo import

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


$  aptly repo import <src-mirror> <dst-repo> <package-query> ...

Params are:

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


  • -dry-run: don’t import, just show what would be imported
  • -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-repo, architectures should be specified with -architectures flag.
