This is an add-on package not required by the Ubuntu OS

aptoncd has not been maintained for 10 years, there is a problem with its license and it depends on other obsolete packages.

see https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=885946

I agree it has been an abandon package for a very long time.

In your Ubuntu Software Center try " Timeshift" It is a system restore utility for Linux.
To put the snapshot of the OS on a usb live https://www.balena.io/etcher/

timeshift - backs up entire system.
i need a software which can backup /var/cache/apt/archives
it must not copy old and obselete pacakges

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #7

A hint: The command

sudo apt autoclean

deletes obsolete packages from the /var/cache/apt/archives directory

Or:

sudo apt-get --download-only `dpkg -l | grep ^ii | awk {'print $2'}`

Which will grab every deb for all installed packages. You can then transfer these to the destination system

Can you help with this problem?
