For Debian & Ubuntu there is our own repository, which you can add with the command:

sudo wget https://linux-clients.seafile.com/seafile.asc -O /usr/share/keyrings/yoursecurecloud-sync-keyring.asc

Add the appropriate repository to your apt sources by using the line that corresponds to your Debian version:

- For Debian 9 
sudo bash -c "echo 'deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/yoursecurecloud-sync-keyring.asc] https://linux-clients.seafile.com/seafile-deb/stretch/ stable main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yoursecurecloud-sync.list"

- For Debian 10 
sudo bash -c "echo 'deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/yoursecurecloud-sync-keyring.asc] https://linux-clients.seafile.com/seafile-deb/buster/ stable main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yoursecurecloud-sync.list"

- For Ubuntu 18.04 
sudo bash -c "echo 'deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/yoursecurecloud-sync-keyring.asc] https://linux-clients.seafile.com/seafile-deb/bionic/ stable main' > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/yoursecurecloud-sync.list"
