Yes if you had activated this PPA in your system all packages will receive updates on performing sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade or from the GUI update manager.

Yes, using ppa-purge will replace all the packages from that ppa with the most current default packages from the Ubuntu repos. The "Y PPA Manager" just makes it easy to find the ppa as you don't have to try to type the name into the command line, it still calls ppa-purge while running.

In the case libtool/libtool-bin, I think an OR relation might work: Build-Depends: libtool-bin (>= 2.4.2-1.10) | libtool (<< 2.4.2-1.10) The version numbers are that of utopic, when the split was imported from Debian.

I was having the same problem when trying to run other program, and found a solution on StackOverflow. Basically, just do the following commands: Firstly, install: sudo apt-get install libstdc++6 This should already be installed by default, but try it anyway.

Duh! In order to verify the proxy settings are setup correctly for sudo, I entered the interactive mode: $ sudo -i $ env | grep proxy https_proxy=http://my-proxy:8080 It turned out that only https_proxy was set for root. As I had set the proxy env vars in /etc/environment this was a bit strange as sudo should source /etc/environment. Then I stumbled upon ...

Most simple way to delete all of your ppa'a is this: cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d && sudo rm -i *list* It will first take you to the dir with sources.list.d and then rm (remove) basically all files with list.
