I followed this link How can I install Sun/Oracle's proprietary Java JDK 6/7/8 or JRE? . I manually did it and the version got changed to jdk1.7.0_80. Thanks for your time @A.B , @Oli and @Byte Commander.

Slightly at odds with A.B. the latest version of openjdk-7-jdk is 7u79-2.5.5-0ubuntu0.14.04.2, but your Apt output shows serious network issues: Could not connect to 192.168.5.100:80 (192.168.5.100), connection timed out 192.168.*.* is a local address so one of two things has happened here: You have incorrect proxy settings for Apt. If you are behind a ...

Ubuntu has OpenJDK in its repository. It's the fully open-sourced version of the Oracle JDK, which contains some closed-source parts. It is a myth that OpenJDK is lower and less stable, but this was the past. Today (since version 7), they're pretty equal. OpenJDK is even the reference implementation for Java 7 and Java 8. It's a race between those two ...

I think I found the problem, as Kodi is now installing correctly: First I found all the packages that were still hanging around from saucy by running dpkg --list | grep saucy One by one I removed them all using apt-get remove <packagename>. (I suspect these were old packages that were installed via some weird ppa when I installed gnome.) After ...

Just point your package users to add PPA with source option: sudo add-apt-repository -s ppa:pierre-barbierdereuille/ppa instead of binary builds only: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pierre-barbierdereuille/ppa Reference: man add-apt-repository -s, --enable-source Allow downloading of the source packages from the repository

I do not know who Michael Marley is and what is his ppa. Proprietary Nvidia drivers perform better in games than Nouveau in most cases. You can install recommended drivers from Ubuntu repositories. They should work OK for your adapter. This can be done from System Settings -> Software & Updates -> Additional Drivers. For very new adapters with ...

There is no PPA and the package is not available via the standard repositories. By I think, you can trust GetDeb. From time to time the site is down, but otherwise there are no problems. Install the GetDeb repository: cd wget http://archive.getdeb.net/install_deb/getdeb-repository_0.1-1~getdeb1_all.deb sudo dpkg -I getdeb-repository_0.1-1~getdeb1_all.deb ...

Yes, if you install something via the package management system (dpkg and apt), when you apt upgrade or apt dist-upgrade it will look at all your locally defined sources (PPAs, official repos, local caches, CDs etc) and attempt to install the latest version of all packages. apt upgrade will only upgrade something if it doesn't require installing extra ...

The issue was sudo does not load user environment variables. http_proxy and ftp_proxy was missing. Strangely, for me only https_proxy was defined for sudoers. If you are behind a proxy check these: $ sudo -i [sudo] password for user: # env | grep proxy # http_proxy=http://10.3.100.207:8080/ # ftp_proxy=ftp://10.3.100.207:8080/ # ...

LibreOffice does not provide any nightly PPA, unfortunately. Hopefully in the future, as it distances itself from the old OpenOffice backbone, it will be available in this way. For now the only option for daily builds is to use the manual installation options. This answer could be updated in the future if the situation changes. To clarify I wrote this ...

The PPA has the name ppa:upubuntu-com/office There is a matching list file in your /etc/apt/sources.list.d/. Remove the file sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/upubuntu-com-ubuntu-office-trusty.list and run sudo apt-get update

You did not install the package. PPA is connected, update has done. Just run sudo apt-get install sqlitebrowser and sqlitebrowser version 3.6.0~trusty1ppa2 will be installed. It seems that you simply did not try to install it. After you add a ppa, you always have to run sudo apt-get update to be able to install packages from it.
