PPAs do not belong to the main Ubuntu archive, no. However, PPAs only have a main archive, as they are not part of the Ubuntu archive itself. They do not have universe or multiverse. Nothing in a PPA is supported by officially supported Ubuntu, generally speaking. However, the Launchpad Terms of Service also prohibit you from uploading any proprietary ...

You really need to provide more details; it's not clear to me what you're asking. There's no need to install all of the packages from a PPA; simply add the PPA using apt-add-repository and install the relevant package using apt-get.

You should use the ppa-purge program to remove PPAs. I think you'll have to first add the PPAs back, do an apt-get update. Reinstall any packages you removed from the PPA. Use dpkg if necessary. See if packages are still in conflict. If not, install ppa-purge and use it to remove the PPA: sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge <ppa-name> ...

This cannot easily be done in any automated way, especially if you have any PPAs that are giving 404. (which most people do) Also, depending on what packages you have installed, a completely automated downgrade could really screw up your system.

APT refers to these packages as "obsolete". Evidently there is no direct way to list these, but you could do: aptitude search '~o' Or alternatively: apt-show-versions | grep 'No available version' Source: How do I get a list of obsolete packages?
