[Bug 1566757] Re: preseed fails to add custom repos with apt-setup/local0/repository in xenial

I found a solution that works for me:

By default in xenial documentation:

d-i apt-setup/local0/repository string http://local.server/ubuntu xenial

But only adding word "deb" before the URL it works:

d-i apt-setup/local0/repository string deb http://local.server/ubuntu
xenial main
