Im trying to access mercurial repositories that were created on windows with mercurial version 1.8.2. As the version in the repositories is a few numbers behind, its not playing ball. Does anyone know if there is a repository with up to date versions of mercurial or am i best just to build it from source?

Just add this ppa to your sources:

Use ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases instead.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mercurial-ppa/releases
