Ubuntu 16.04 repository error

I think that there is an error in the directory structure for the Ubuntu 16.04 deb repository. Following the install instructions at [1] results in a repo line of [2]. This matches the directory structure for the other ubuntu repositories (e.g. 14.04). However the actual directory appears to be [3] (notice the duplicated ubuntu16.04). Prior to updating my sources.list file I received errors about being unable to find packages or headers (sorry I lost the exact error message). After modifying sources.list so that it contains [3] I was able to install ice 3.6.2 without problems.

p.s. Thanks for hosting the repos its makes staying up to date more convenient!

    Hi John,

    Thanks for reporting the issue, we have fixed the servers, but sync could take some time.

    Regards,
    José
