MapR 5.2.1 Ubuntu Releases

I was using MapR 5.2 and under dists at for ubuntu it has mapr and then optional. (I am not an expert on apt-get and how it works etc).  This allowed me, on a ubuntu:latest containers (with a /etc/os-release of:


VERSION="16.04.1 LTS (Xenial Xerus)"



PRETTY_NAME="Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS"








To run install in MapR 5.2 I basically added the the packages to MapR

RUN echo "deb mapr optional" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mapr.list
RUN echo "deb binary/" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mapr.list

and then


apt-get update, and apt-get install. 




Now with MapR 5.2.1, I am only allowed to install to trusty? (That's what I think I am seeing)

 When I do the same with my setup, when I run apt-get update I get


W: The repository ' mapr Release' does not have a Release file.

W: The repository ' binary/ Release' does not have a Release file.

I guess I am surprised that I could install MapR 5.2 on ubuntu:latest (xenial) (16.04) but now with MapR 5.2.1 I am limited only to ubuntu trusty (14.04) . FYI, Ubuntu 16.04 was released over a year ago. (Obviously this is using the apt-get methods, if I were to work with the deb files, I could probably get it installed, but that is a lot of coordination I need to do, hence, why apt-get is so nice!)
