Filing issues: If using 3.17.0 or later please file any issues at https://issues.sonatype.org/.
Upgrading to 3.17.0: If you are an existing APT user upgrading to 3.17 you will not be able to install the community plugin. No other changes are required and your existing data will remain intact.
There are some differences from the community version of the plugin. First of all, we have added component records for the .deb files which adds support for features such as Search, Cleanup Policies, Tagging (PRO only) and Moving between repositories (PRO only). We've also added support for Restore Metadata Task, API for Repository creation via Groovy and we've written help documentation. The "retain N versions" feature has been removed as this conflicts with Cleanup Policies and future work we are doing in that space.

Clone the project:
git clone https://github.com/sonatype-nexus-community/nexus-repository-apt
Build the plugin:
cd nexus-repository-apt mvn
docker build -t nexus-repository-apt:3.15.2 .
docker run -d -p 8081:8081 --name nexus-repo nexus-repository-apt:3.15.2
For further information like how to persist volumes check out the GitHub Repo for the official Nexus Repository 3 Docker image.
The application will now be available from your browser at http://localhost:8081
service nexus stop
cd <nexus_dir>/bin ./nexus stop

This will cause the plugin to be loaded and started with each startup of Nexus Repository.
curl -u user:pass -X POST -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" --data-binary "@package.deb" http://nexus_url:8081/repository/repo_name/
curl -u user:pass -X MKCOL http://nexus_url:8081/repository/repo_name/snapshots/$SNAPSHOT_ID
To sign packages use;
gpg --export-secret-key --armor <Name or ID> and passphrase in the hosted repository configuration.
The private armored key should look like this:
-----BEGIN PGP PRIVATE KEY BLOCK----- ...Base64 key... -----END PGP PRIVATE KEY BLOCK-----
It is worth noting that this is NOT SUPPORTED by Sonatype, and is a contribution of Mike Poindexter's plus us to the open source community (read: you!)
Phew, that was easier than I thought. Last but not least of all:
Have fun building and using this plugin on the Nexus platform, we are glad to have you here!
