Add checking repository access in "APT Updates" (mk_apt) plugin

14 votes

Hi,
I think it would be good if the mk_apt plugin also checked that there is no errors
when running “apt update”.

Today the plugin will show no updates if for instance a firewall suddenly blocks access to the repository.

This forum post describes the problem and also present a local check as an alternative that is working. But it would be nice to have it configurable in the plugin instead:
