The Ubuntu & Debian repository is about to be changed.

This change is per the requirements for Ubuntu 17 + 18.
It adds the now-required stanza to the package file to satisfy apt-get.

For those already using the old workaround (./public main)

  1. Revert /etc/apt/sources.list.d/plexmediaserver.list from its current ./public main workaround to be the correct public main
  2. Flush appropriate caches
  3. Verify you are now operating error and warning free.

For those not using the repository

  1. When you enable repository use, no changes are required. The package you install will be properly configured.

Please DISABLE Verbose logging until requested
