Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free.

I would like to ask if it is possible to update/upgrade packages through ftp. It means accessing ppa.launchpad.net via ftp/https. Or does launchpad.net have mirrors?

I know that I can download package through https://launchpadlibrarian.net and I can upload package into launchpad.net via ftp.

I believe if you have the link to the PPA, you can download the .deb packages from their systems via HTTPS. I believe that at the PPA's screen, you can hit "View Packages" and you can then expand the specific package in question and download the .deb. But I'm uncertain about that, as I've never specifically used that method.
