Failed to download repositories on linux installation

Asked by mhis

My offline system runs Ubuntu Bionic, and my online system runs Xenial. I followed the instructions in the guide and copied the project folder to the online machine's cube directory, then started cube and attempted to download the repository information for the Bionic release.

The progress indicator spinned a few times and then the error message "Failed to Download" showed up, informing me that apparently none of the project's repositories could be downloaded.

The repositories are as follows: bionic main bionic main bionic universe bionic restricted bionic main

I've checked the sources list and as far as I can tell all the addresses within are valid.

Has anyone experienced this error before? I thought this might be due to a connection issue of some sort, but really I have no idea what might be causing this. I googled the issue but it wasn't mentioned anywhere.

Nevermind, I figured out the problem!

Cube's downloader (axel) requires executable permission. After I granted it the repository download proceeded normally.
