Problems with installing Brave on Ubuntu


I have installed and used Brave as snap on Ubuntu. Unfortunately is out of date and do not update. I tried to install through APT.

There are problems all the way.
First the key is not getting to the system, just showing in terminal.
Then the source file is empty. When I manually add source list and update I get

The repository ‘ xienial Release’ does not have a Release file.
Nie udało się pobrać 403 Forbidden

I have never had any problem like this with any other PPA.


Looping-in @sriram for help.


W:The repository ‘ xienial Release’ does not have a Release file., W:Data from such a repository can’t be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use., W:See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details., E:Failed to fetch 403 Forbidden, E:Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

After new try I get:

Skipping acquire of configured file ‘main/binary-i386/Packages’ as repository ‘ xenial InRelease’ doesn’t support architecture ‘i386’

Tested on Core 2 Due T8300


The method:

wget -O brave.deb
sudo dpkg -i brave.deb

work OK.
