Having trouble after installing Syncthing on Ubuntu. I am unable to update or remove. What did I miss? Thank you in advance.
Maybe related to https://forum.syncthing.net/t/not-able-to-install-on-linux-mint-20-1? Just a guess, as both topics have been created in the last few days and are related to the same Ubuntu family.
Even if it’s a completely different problem, the same request for details on how you’re trying to install Syncthing and to try using the instructions from https://apt.syncthing.net applies.

I got the error below running apt update:
Err:10 https://apt.syncthing.net syncthing InRelease
Could not connect to apt.syncthing.net:443 (184.108.40.206), connection timed out Could not connect to apt.syncthing.net:443 (2a03:b0c0:0:1010::99:8001), connection timed out
To be fair, the URL wasn’t working for me either about ~1 hour ago. Now it is up again.
That sounds like Linux Mint might be enforcing a read-only
/usr/ hierarchy? The path you specify here is arbitrary, you can just put the file somewhere else (in
/root/ maybe?) and adjust the APT sources file accordingly.
