I am using openSTLinux with kernel version 4.19 on the STM32MP157c-dk2 board. It turns out a lot of software I need isn't installed by default and I need to show a proof of concept project working.

apt-get is installed. However /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ doesn't have any files in it. I'm not sure what to even add.

lsb_release -s -i returns: openstlinux-western

uname -m returns: armv7l

When I try to run apt-get install git git can't be found, as is the case with anything else I want to install.

I have had the same problem, and for a while I could not find any useful information on the matter until I came across the question How to install additional software on STM32MP157C-DK2 from internet on the ST Community.

To use apt-get, there has to be a Package repository maintained by a person or group of people, who is packaging the programs and applications to that particular Linux distribution.

And, since there is no sources.list file at /etc/apt/ in the openstlinux-western distribution that comes with the STM32MP157C-DK2 board, we can not use this method to install programs.

Take a look at the How to integrate an external software package article from ST wiki page.
