  1. Warning, installation on cosmic cuttlefish might not be safe – it’s probably fine; main issue is that such a system’s sources.list file needs to accommodate (trust) the repository.
    E: The repository ‘http://ppa.launchpad.net/snwh/pulp/ubuntu cosmic Release’ does not have a Release file.
    N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
    N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
