Mixing and matching binaries from incorrect series may lead to unexpected

It's better to launch a xenial chroot / container / VM and install things
inside it.

$ lxc launch ubuntu:xenial

Will create a container, that you can exec into, setup ssh to ssh into, and
install SAS inside it and than export it to your host.

For, I normally look at updates URLs, as those should
be directly accessible

The security URLs, rightly advise to only install security updates
validated with apt.
