Not much guessing required, the feature list is documented and in the initial announcement post of this thread..

Anyhow, apt-cache-ng is more a proxy hosts are directly using, and such not air-gapped from the WAN, it also cannot manage Proxmox subscriptions in an offline manner. So, the whole offline part is rather lacking there, while the proxy functionallity works out of the box, while POM would require some (small) manual setup to work similar like that.

I fully understood "promox" branding and features, would expect POM to be more polished and targeted application.

Thanks for the reply and and thanks to the team for ongoing research and development to the "Proxmox" suite of apps!

there's currently not proxy support, but it shouldn't be too hard to implement. could you maybe file an enhancement request at https://bugzilla.proxmox.com ?

The dist is given after the base URL, so drop the quoted part from each sources list entry, and it should work - given there's no other configuration error.

For your case it should probably look something like:
Code:
deb [check-valid-until=false] http://proxmox-mirror/debian_bullseye_main/2022-12-07T11:42:44Z bullseye main contrib non-free

# security updates
deb [check-valid-until=false] http://proxmox-mirror/debian_bullseye_security/2022-12-07T11:42:44Z bullseye-security main contrib non-free

# update
deb [check-valid-until=false] http://proxmox-mirror/debian_bullseye_updates/2022-12-07T11:42:44Z bullseye-updates main contrib non-free

probably you set up your mirror to skip debug packages? it's the suggestion when using the setup wizard ;)

well, if you exclude packages they are not mirrored, and then also not available on the mirror, so yes :p

Hi,

I am trying to use the offline mirror to mirror the enterprise repo. My systems are not exactly airgapped so I do not need offline subscription keys, I mainly want the mirror to control how the different clusters get updates (ie create a snaphost, update the test cluster to it and then update the prod cluster). What I haven't figured out from the docs though is if I still need to get a subscription key as described here https://pom.proxmox.com/offline-keys.html#setup-offline-mirror-key or if that is only needed to manage subscriptions for the airgapped systems.

Thanks,
Florian

You need a key if you want to mirror the enterprise repo.
