Ubuntu: NAS Support For Ubuntu 16.04


I've purchased the 'Western Digital MyBook Live 2TB Personal Cloud Storage'. It supports NAS. I am trying to setup automatic backups. (Something like rysnc which may run daily to backup my /home folder.

I found this thread giving the instruction:

sudo apt-get install pyNeighborhood  

This is from 2010. I am getting the error

Unable to locate package pyNeighborhood  

I don't want to risk corrupting my Ubuntu 16.04 desktop. Is there a similar package that is suitable?


If I'm not wrong, you can browser content of network disk "out-of-the-box" in Ubuntu, e.g., via samba [CTRL+L in nautilus and put in address bar smb://hostname (or IP)]. The same can be obtained with afp, sshfs.

If you want to use it as backup I recommend some of the "supported" programs. See https://help.ubuntu.com/community/BackupYourSystem


Just based on your Unable to locate package pyNeighborhood error, something's wrong since the pyneighborhood package is still in the Ubuntu repositories for trusty, xenial, artful, and bionic.

Do you have a regular Ubuntu software source (in /etc/apt/sources or /etc/apt/sources.list.d/) and have you done an apt-get update before attempting install? It should work.
