Installing on Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic)


Here is a forum thread for those trying the installation on Ubuntu and following the procedure for Debian:

Though the bug also hits Debian users but I guess they’ll find the original thread.

Symptoms: some packages are still in version 0.58.2 or even missing in the repository, e.g. snips-skill-server.

There is a bug when running “sam init”, it will replace the repo URL with the one for Raspbian. You have to edit /etc/apt/sources.list.d/snips.list afterwards and restore the URL for amd64 platforms:

Sam will also put the Ubuntu release codename (cosmic here) in the URL you’ll only get a 404. Stick to “stretch”.

Source: Install on debian 9 VM follow the manual procedure described.
