Installing apt-1.6.6 Isses

Asked by AJ Aboufariss

Hi Team, I am trying to install apt-1.6.6 on Ubuntu 18.04 - and after I ran cmake, I got the error below:

Also, since I just I upgraded my system to Ubuntu 18.04 and to avoid the issues I have with apt-1.6.6 - where do I download the latest security patch for 18.04 ?

Thank you !

1. Why do you want to build your own version of install apt 1.6.6 on Ubuntu 18.04? There is version 1.6.8 in the standard repositories (bionic-updates).

2. I have seen such error message already somewhere else:

/usr/bin/cmake ...
/usr/bin/cc ... CheckFunctionExists.c.o -o cmTC_0ca85 -lpthreads
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthreads

As far as I know, on Ubuntu it has to be -lpthread (without s)

I do not have any idea, what the root cause is for this.

Can you help with this problem?
