Abilio, I do believe you are confusing the repositories for Yum and Apt as being the same. While one might get the same package from either one, the source list is different. I would suggest you do a search on this forum as to how to populate the source list for each. And then do so. They are not the same. Check out the How-To section and you will find the answer you seek. At the 'Search' option key in 'Yum source list' and 'Apt source list'. I got several hits.
