I installed the latest juju development release - and due to some bugs, I would like to revert back to stable, how do I do that?

I've executed the following against my machine:

sudo apt-get remove juju juju-local
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/juju-devel.list
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:juju/stable
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install juju juju-local

It still shows the juju development version as installed. What went wrong?

Juju is a meta package. You also need to remove juju-core

sudo apt-get remove juju-core

and this will remove the development binaries for juju devel from your machine, now after removing the devel ppa, and wiping any of the leftovers you're free to install Stable again with:

sudo apt-get install juju juju-local
