The Jellyfin media app has instructions to install it via repository for Ubuntu releases (supported releases are xenial, bionic, cosmic, disco, eoan, and focal).
The issue is with step 4. (shown below) because the command
lsb_release -c -s returns
hera, and this is not a Ubuntu release.
Will it work if I manually set
bionic, which is the Ubuntu release that elementary OS is based on? Or will I bork my system?
Install HTTPS transport for APT if you haven't already:
sudo apt install apt-transport-https
Enable the Universe repository to obtain all the FFMpeg dependencies:
sudo add-apt-repository universe
Import the GPG signing key (signed by the Jellyfin Team):
wget -O - https://repo.jellyfin.org/ubuntu/jellyfin_team.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
Add a repository configuration at
echo "deb [arch=$( dpkg --print-architecture )] https://repo.jellyfin.org/ubuntu $( lsb_release -c -s ) main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jellyfin.list
Update APT repositories:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install jellyfin
Manage the Jellyfin system service with your tool of choice:
sudo service jellyfin status sudo systemctl restart jellyfin sudo /etc/init.d/jellyfin stop
