Expanded sources.list for Ubuntu server 18.04

By default, if the new installer is utilized when deploying Ubuntu server 18.04, the /etc/apt/sources.list will contain only two entries. This doesn’t cover much, so to expand it to be a bit more useful we replace it with:

deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic main restricted
deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates main restricted
deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic universe
deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates universe
deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic multiverse
deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-updates multiverse
deb http://jp.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ bionic-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security main restricted
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security universe
deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu bionic-security multiverse

Note that this is for Japan (“jp”). Change this to “us” or similar to match your region if not in Japan.
