Is it possible to install ubuntu-wallpapers-yakkety on 16.04 (xenial) through apt?

Asked by Tianxing Yang

At first, when I typed sudo apt install ubuntu-wallpapers-yakkety in Ubuntu 16.04, it cannot find and install the package.
I can only do that by downloading the .deb package and installing it.

I wonder if it is possible for me to use apt to directly install that package.

A package with ubuntu-wallpapers-yakkety exists in the Ubuntu repositories only for yakkety and zesty.

You cannot install this package on a xenial system directly from the repositories, because there is no repository for xenial with such package.

The only possibility that I see is downloading the .deb file and installing it with "dpkg --install ...", but that should work without problems, because there are no dependencies that have to be met.
