Hello! We are running within virtual network (not sure about the specific as inherited from another owner with very little documentation) and we are adding a new Ubuntu Virtual Machine in there.

We need to install some new packages but unable to reach to azure.archive.ubuntu.com, we checked firewalls, security groups, allowed traffic on all ports, but we are still unable to ping or get reply.
Any tip how we can get the packages there?
What conditions are required for the virtual network to be able to hit the archive?

Unable to connect to azure.archive.ubuntu.com

    Hi Jiri,

    I recommend you first check the effective security rules on the interface:

    User's image

    After that if you are completly sure that there no block trafic , execute a curl or wget to any file on that repository to verify if it's workin.

    wget http://azure.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/pacemaker/libcib-dev_1.1.14-2ubuntu1.9_amd64.deb

    curl http://azure.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/p/pacemaker/libcib-dev_1.1.14-2ubuntu1.9_amd64.deb --output package.deb

    Let me know if there is an error message.

    Cheers,

    Luis Arias
