Summary0002981: Download repository missing release file
DescriptionThe openFOAM download page appeares to be missing a bionic release file, which prevents downloads and installation of the software.
Steps To ReproduceAdding dl.openfoam.org/ubuntu as a repository (sudo add-apt-repository http://dl.openfoam.org/ubuntu), the following error is obtained:

E: The repository 'http:/dl.openfoam.org/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file.

This prevents installation using this method.
Additional InformationHave reproduced the error on multiple versions of Ubuntu and with multiple versions of openfoam.

There is a Release file for bionic. It is in this directory:

Are you sure you installed added the public key correctly with?:
sudo sh -c "wget -O - http://dl.openfoam.org/gpg.key | apt-key add -"

You can check with:
apt-key list

Output should include:
uid [ unknown] OpenFOAM Foundation...

I have just tested a clean Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic) installation and ran the following with no errors:

sudo sh -c "wget -O - http://dl.openfoam.org/gpg.key | apt-key add -"
sudo add-apt-repository http://dl.openfoam.org/ubuntu
sudo apt-get update

Another option: is your networking down?
