    Sorry About Repeating the post… now  attached the terminal session transcript of the failure.

    Trying to follow the VisualKernel Tutorials “Hello World” with VisualKernel 3.1. The “Download and install kernel symbols” setup of the project keeps looping and is unsuccessful in downloading the symbols and kernel source to allow source debugging.

    The Linux Machine is a VMWare workstation instance of Ubuntu 18.04.2 desktop and Visual Kernel 3.1 is running on Visual Studio 2017. The tutorials seem bit outdated since screens do not match however they are close enough for me to follow along. The Kernel on the VM is (uname -r ==> 4.18.0-25-generic) and (uname -v ==> #26~18.04.1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 27 07:28:31 UTC 2019)

    The problem it seems is that VisualKernel is issuing deprecated commands for downloading the debug Symbols and Source. The ddebs file created in the /etc/apt/sources.list.d seems incorrect. (The bionic-security line in ddebs does not seem to work and download fails). This is possibly causing the setup to go into an infinite loop.

    If I cancel or do not select the Download and Install Kernel Symbols then source debugging is not working, even though I have manually installed the kernel source and debug symbols for the kernel. VisualKernel does not seem to find or recognize that the source and symbols are there. The manual commands that work on Ubuntu 18.04.2 are:: (Not the same as ones issued by VisualKernel)

    sudo apt install linux-source-4.18.0

    sudo apt install linux-image-4.18.0-25-generic-dbgsym

    I am a student and this is my first time using these tools. Please help fix this so I can follow the tutorials on your website.

    Thank You
