Trying to Install on Linux Mint 18.3 "Sylvia"

I realize that installing the Lambda Stack on Linux Mint is not technically supported. But as Mint 18.3 is based on Ubuntu 16.04, and 16.04 is Lambda Stack-compatible, I was hoping it would work. I’m getting an error on the sudo apt update part of the install:
E: The repository ' sylvia Release' does not have a Release file.

N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and used configuration details.

If this simply means I can’t install the Lambda stack on Linux Mint, I understand. But if there’s a quick fix, that’d be terrific. Thanks for your time!

So the problem is that we don’t have support for “sylvia”. You could try modifying your /etc/apt/sources.list to have the following line:

deb xenial main

Then type:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y lambda-stack-cuda

The simple issue is that we don’t have the sylvia code word in our repository.

In Linux Mint 19.1 code name Tessa you can use Update Manager.

Open Update Manager → Edit → Software Sources → Additional repositories →

Find Lambdalabs and Lambdalabs (sources)

Edit/Rename the entry ‘tessa’ into ‘bionic

Hey @jansenicus does Lambda Stack work with Linux mint when you do that?
