Since it is advised to disable 3rd party repositories before the new update (very reasonable as other GNU/Linux distros advice the same), is there an easy (preferably CLI) way to disable those repositories?

When I am trying to do so via Warehouse, it takes forever because it does 'pkcon refresh' after each repo.

Thank you

OK, I have found the answer myself:

List repositories with

pkcon repo-list

and then disable the desired ones with (replace REPOSITORY with its name)

pkcon repo-disable REPOSITORY
