apt-mirror: Release File Error Fix

I’m going through the process of configuring a new Ubuntu 16.04 server template at work and needed to add the 16.04 repo’s to our apt-mirror server. After I added the appropriate Ubuntu-side repo’s, I got this error when trying to do an apt update on the client side:

“The repository ‘%your repository name%’ does not have a Release file.”

This can be solved by modifying the permissions in the directory that the repo files are located. In my case, I needed to chown the directory (listed below) and give www-data/Apache the correct permissions instead of root:

sudo chown -R www-data: /var/www/repo/
