APT proxy repo for Ubuntu 2204 results in 502 Bad Gateway

Create the repo as a proxy APT repo. Distribution set as jammy, remote storage as hxxp://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu . The other settings I leave as default. Done.

On Ubuntu 22.04, I edit /etc/apt/sources.list. Replace all references to hxxp://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu with hxxp://mynexushost:8081/repository/jammy .

sudo apt clean
sudo apt update
This nicely updates from my repo.

If I then try to install anything. e.g. net-tools by doing sudo apt install net-tools, then this result in

502 Bad Gateway [IP: 192.168.65.11 8081]
E: Failed to fetch hxxp://mynexushost:8081/repository/jammy/pool/main/n/net-tools/net-tools_1.60%2bgit20181103.0eebece-1ubuntu5_amd64.deb 502 Bad Gateway [IP: 192.168.65.11 8081]
where the ip is the ip of mynexushost.

I have a feeling that I am missing something. But not quite what I am missing. Is it something about jammy-updates, jammy-backports and so on, or something else entirely?

Regards Niels Jespersen

PS. hxxp in this post should be http, but I’m not allowed to put more than 2 links in a post as a new user.

I have exactly the same error.

You should look at the logs on Nexus and see if they say anything.

That is a good idea. I get this. I am not sure what it means, though.

I’m getting the same error. Logs look similar to what you’ve posted. I’m still digging, will respond again if I find anything.

Upgrading from 3.37.3-2 to 3.39.0-01 fixed the issue. I’m happy now.
