Edit the /etc/apk/repositories file and if necessary, add references to the Alpine package repositories. In the example below, the reference to the Alpine CD is maintained, so that if the requested package is available on the local media, it will be obtained from there instead of being downloaded from the remote repository:

Contents of /etc/apk/repositories

/media/cdrom/apks http://dl-3.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v2.4/main

Only one repository is shown above; however, you may also replace http://dl-3.alpinelinux.org/alpine/ with any of these (if you wish to use another version, also replace v2.4 with the desired version):

After updating the repositories file, obtain the latest index (and available packages, if you've enabled APK caching):

apk update --update-cache
