After having waited for the command to complete for hours, I saw that it hangs on all tox repositories. I checked their main page and found out, that the whole infrastructure including repositories, wiki and main site moved to a different domain. That's why the old URL is not alive any more and why apt-get update is timing out. On their new wiki, they gave ...

The package itself was not deleted from the officially Ubuntu repositories. Maybe the version 2.1.3-1ubuntu0.2, but that's unusual. And as you said in the comments: As @mchid mentions above, somehow I had 'proposed' changes enabled. When I took this off, a whole bunch of other packages got moved to local. And this explains so much, like why this PC ...

This depends on whether whoever made the package honoured Ubuntu/Debian's versioning of their packages. For example, consider the Vim package: $ apt-cache policy vim vim: Installed: 2:7.4.811-1~ppa1~t Candidate: 2:7.4.811-1~ppa1~t Version table: *** 2:7.4.811-1~ppa1~t 0 500 http://ppa.launchpad.net/pi-rho/dev/ubuntu/ trusty/main amd64 ...

Every time you install a package, update the PPA. You can learn how to write a metapackage here. Add the PPA to all computers you want to update. Run: sudo apt-get install ...

That's the wrong archive. Extract the archive and test only one file, eg % file LICENSE.bin LICENSE.bin: MacBinary III data with surprising version number The Download area doesn't contains a download link for a Linux version. The linked deb file in your question does not look reassuring. Install the latest Gimp version via sudo apt-get install ...

The first two lines are not commands. The best way is to create a list file for this repository. You can do it this way sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cppcms.list <<< "deb http://apt.cppcms.com/ trusty main" sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/cppcms.list <<< "deb-src http://apt.cppcms.com/ trusty main" sudo apt-get update Then you can ...

I don't know where you copied those commands from, but they subsituted pretty quotes (‘’) instead of '. See: sudo add-apt-repository ‘deb Use ' instead: sudo add-apt-repository 'deb http://star-www.st-andrews.ac.uk/cran/bin/linux/ubuntu/trusty/'
