I have banshee 2.2.1 with Ubuntu 11.10 I have been trying to update banshee to 2.4 (released yesterday) but it just isnt working, I have been using

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa

in terminal, from the website. but after running through terminal it says this:

     sudo add-apt-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa
You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
 PPA for Banshee Team
 This PPA contains the latest stable debs of Banshee for Ubuntu. To install Banshee, you must first enable the PPA on your system:
1. Open Software Sources (System->Administration->Software Sources)
2. Navigate to the "Third Party Sources" tab. 
3. Click "Add"
4. Enter the APT line below that corresponds to your Ubuntu version that starts with "deb".
5. Click "Add Source"
6. Click "Close"
7. It will prompt you to reload your software cache. Click "Reload".
8. Now install the package "banshee" from Synaptic, or using the command below:
sudo apt-get install banshee

For those who wish to compile from trunk, add the deb-src line and then run "sudo apt-get build-dep" to install all required dependencies before starting to compile.

Unstable (version which have odd minor version numbers) debs of Banshee can be found here:

Try this thread, I just asked a similar question: – Michael Clare Mar 23 '12 at 1:42

You've added the PPA but that doesn't automatically update or upgrade anything.

You just need to update with Update Manager or via:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
