Dear community users:


Recently, deepin community team has received feedback from users that there were some third-party commercial applications and redistribution authorization issues in the official repository.

We responded immediately and carried out actions such as cleaning, removal, and migration, saving a lot of repository space (189GB). Deepin 15 repository (https://packages.deepin.com/) will be replaced with the official repository (https:/ /community-packages.deepin.com). Global mirror sites can also sync the latest deepin 20 repository and ISO images. Details are as follows:



  • Migrate the main repository to deepin 20 version
  • Clean up applications in the non-free directory
  • Clean up deepin-wine applications
  • Clean up some commercial cooperative applications
  • Clean up some applications that require redistribution authorization

ISO images

  • Removed the 15.11 and earlier version images in the official releases (http://cdimage.deepin.com/releases/)
  • Removed the 15.11 and earlier version images in the mirror site (rsync://rsync.deepin.com/cdimage/)

Upgrade to deepin 20 repository


  • After executing the following command, the repository address of deepin 15.11 in the /etc/apt/sources.list file will be overwritten by the new source.
  • Cross-version upgrade might lead to uncertainties of system. You're recommended to install the latest ISO with version 1003.
sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [by-hash=force] https://community-packages.deepin.com/deepin/ apricot main contrib non-free \ndeb-src https://community-packages.deepin.com/deepin/ apricot main contrib non-free "  > /etc/apt/sources.list'

Please add the main repository address first, then run "sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade" to update or upgrade in Control Center. After updates, add the source of App Store and Printer Manager below.

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb https://community-store-packages.deepin.com/appstore eagle appstore "  > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/appstore.list'

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb https://community-packages.deepin.com/printer eagle non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/printer.list'
