Bug Description

Or provide a reliable CLI method, a direct sed on /etc/atp/sources.list does not feel clean.

Motivation: https://askubuntu.com/questions/496549/error-you-must-put-some-source-uris-in-your-sources-list

This is specially important for Docker, but also a big annoyance on desktop, as there is no clean CLI way of enabling it.

Why not just enable by default and save people the trouble?
