Option 3 -- Automatically add the new PPA This is like 2, but php5-common would automatically add the new PPA, so the new packages would be available after next apt-get update run. Optionally there could be a Debconf question whether the users wants the PPA added automatically or they will do so themselves. Pros: One single repository to handle No ...

As of 29 April 2016, the accepted answer is no longer the correct procedure. It is now self-service: you can change an option in the PPA settings to get it to build for any of the following architectures automatically (documentation link): AMD x86-64 (amd64) ARM ARMv8 (arm64) ARM ARMv7 Soft Float (armel) ARM ARMv7 Hard Float (armhf) Intel x86 (i386) ...

I had this issue - it was because Anaconda2 didn't have the GLIBCXX_3.4.20 version of whatever that thing is. Only up to .19, the same as yours. However, Ubuntu's library did have it. So I just created a softlink/shortcut in the Anaconda library to the actual Linux library containing that GLIBCXX_3.4.20, replacing the previous one, and it worked fine after ...

We could recover the file by reverting to a previous JDK version. Seems a dumb solution, but it works. $ cd /var/cache/apt/archives $ sudo dpkg -i oracle-java8-installer_8u77+8u77arm-1~webupd8~1_all.deb

The error messages you get from apt in this kind of situation are slightly misleading: it's in fact telling you that the libwxgtk2.8-dev package is present but uninstallable. You can get better diagnostics by setting up an environment where apt has your PPA in its sources.list (the chdist tool can be helpful here to avoid disturbing your normal environment ...

The python package would need to be recompiled to use the /usr/local prefix which would mean modifying the source package, you could download the source using apt-get source python2.7 and modifying the debian/rules file to compile with the /usr/local prefix but then apt would still see it as another newer replacement for python2.7 unless you renamed the ...

Every new distribution of Ubuntu has got a new code name: take Xenial Xerus for example. If apt-get update is run, it will search through all repositories, including the ones you manually added, along with the codename xenial. If no package with the codename xenial is available, this will prompt back with 404 not found. The developers for that repository ...

Well, I could test it on Ubuntu 14.04 and (with last commit) in Ubuntu 16.04. As you are new to packaging, it better to enable the verbose debhelper output. Uncomment export DH_VERBOSE=1 in the rules file. The package seems to depend on autoreconf not just automake/autotools. So change the rules main line to: %: #dh $@ --with autotolls-dev dh $@ ...

The only solution as of April 2016 is to compile by yourself. The procedure is described at http://trac.ffmpeg.org/wiki/CompilationGuide/Ubuntu Be sure to run the procedure described at the "libx265" paragraph too, not doing it would result in bad quality video files.
