Ah...
Mine is running on an old desktop Acer with a 4TB drive in it and is windows based...appologies

does apt-get update not work?

Just came across this
https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/235974187
DEB-based distros (Ubuntu, etc.)
To enable the Plex Media Server repository on Ubuntu only a few terminal commands are required. From a terminal window run the following two commands:

Code: Select all

echo deb https://downloads.plex.tv/repo/deb ./public main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list
curl https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-keys/PlexSign.key | sudo apt-key add -
After that, it's just a matter of running the normal sudo apt-get update and the Plex Media Server repo will be enabled on the OS.
