Linux update repositories

Bombbe 1,591 Reputation points

we are planning to start testing Linux vms in Azure but are wondering what the public repositories for are different Linux distributions? Do MS have 'private public' update repositories? I found out that at least Ubuntu has own in the address but how about the rest that are supported in Azure Update Management?

    Hi @Bombbe

    Virtual machines in the Azure Marketplace are VHD's that have been created by the publisher (Microsoft, Ubuntu, Red Hat etc) and stored in Partner owned storage account that is enabled for sharing these images with the customer.

    Long and short, there isn't one repository of images hosted and controlled by Microsoft, but multiple depending on who the image publisher is.
