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:

/media/cdrom/apks
http://dl-3.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v2.1/packages/main

Only one repository is shown above, however, you may also use these (if you wish to use another version, replace v2.1 with the desired version (i.e: v1.9, v1.10, v2.0)):

http://dl-4.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v2.1/packages/main
http://distrib-coffee.ipsl.jussieu.fr/pub/linux/alpine/alpine/v2.1/packages/main
http://dl-2.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v2.1/packages/main
http://nl.alpinelinux.org/alpine/v2.1/packages/main

After updating the repositories file, obtain the latest index of available packages:

apk update
