Any way to cache `apt-get install -y zip` in bitbucket-pipelines?

Hello Atlassian Community,

I have a quick question about caching resources in bitbucket-pipelines.

We're able to cache our pip based resources just fine (thanks btw!) but now we're looking to cache the resources gathered with `apt-get install` as well.

Does anyone know if this is possible? Specifically, we would like to cache `apt-get install -y zip`

Or, if caching `apt-get install`s is not possible, is there a better way to prepare a zip file during a pipeline.

Same question here...


I've added a cache for /var/cache/apt/archives, but it doesn't appear to be working.

Same here; tests requires ffmpeg, they obviously get a nice speedup if a clear way to cache apt-installs was provided! hope to find out soon
