Installing Jellyfin via Ubuntu's bionic repository

elementary OS Asked on August 28, 2021

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?

Installation instructions:

  1. Install HTTPS transport for APT if you haven’t already:

    sudo apt install apt-transport-https
  2. Enable the Universe repository to obtain all the FFMpeg dependencies:

    sudo add-apt-repository universe
  3. Import the GPG signing key (signed by the Jellyfin Team):

    wget -O - |
    sudo apt-key add -
  4. Add a repository configuration at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jellyfin.list:

    echo "deb [arch=$( dpkg --print-architecture )] $( lsb_release -c -s ) main" | sudo
    tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/jellyfin.list
  5. Update APT repositories:

    sudo apt update
  6. Install Jellyfin:

    sudo apt install jellyfin
  7. Manage the Jellyfin system service with your tool of choice:

    sudo service jellyfin status
    sudo systemctl restart jellyfin
    sudo /etc/init.d/jellyfin stop
