Earlier today I asked a question "How to find out what version of a package is in an apt repository?" which was closed as a duplicate of "How to install Google Chrome".
I feel like me adding details and context to my question worked against me here, and that the mention of "installing Google Chrome" jumped out and caused a quick closure as a duplicate. But actually I don't care (currently) about how to install Google Chrome specifically. I want to know how I can effectively browse through the contents of azure.archive.ubuntu.com, as a skill that seems useful on its own.
I even tried to clarify that at the end of my question, the "teach me how to fish" part, but now the dupe-hammer has given me a fish and told me to move on after all. And now I still don't know how to dig through azure.archive.ubuntu.com.
Any recommendations for what to do? Should I vote to reopen with my explanation? Should I write a new, more dedicated question that is more succinct (and not mention google-chrome at all)? Should I find my help outside of askubuntu.com? Your advice, please.
