Could you have a dedicated repository?

Hi Jean-Victor,

I am not sure if you know this. I will write it just in case. Adding a repository doesn't install or copy all files (packages) it contains. It only registers another repository in the apt table. You can install the encryptpad package with "apt install encryptpad". It will only download the necessary files and nothing else.

Cheers,

Software update should not install unwanted packages. I would recommend to research or ask about why this happens and how to disable it.
