Trying to do my first openfoam install on ubuntu 18.04 and running into the error below. Thought it might be something with my isp and so I tried a vpn but that didn't help. Maybe something with my router, which is pfsense? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Code:

Better super late than never. I've just completed my first OpenFOAM (and HELYX-OS) install on Ubuntu 20.04, and ran into the same problem along the way.

The problem is that add-apt-repository, by default, doesn't allow redirection from https to http URLs. I have no idea why parts of the OpenFOAM repo are not secure.

Check out these documentation pages for add-apt-repository:
You need to copy /usr/share/doc/apt/examples/apt.conf to /etc/apt/ and add 'AllowInsecureRepositories "true";' within the 'Acquire' group. I also commented out all of the other sample options.

Hi Nolan,
Do we have any of the same issues with the openfoam-com version?

Thanks in advance.
