I see this on both 13.04 and 13.10 "E: Unable to locate package elementary-meta", it's strange as it looks like it's built in the ppa launchpad.net/~elementary-os/+archive/daily

comment How can I install elementary OS on Ubuntu?
Thanks! It's weird cos it appears in the list (on the daily ppa site) but isn't available to install (other elementary packages are). Perhaps it's a temporary problem?

comment Is it worth installing Ubuntu instead of wubi?
Correct, it is not the same, however it is already installed on the hard-drive via wubi, and surely running on liveCD won't be faster than running on wubi...? At any rate this doesn't answer the question.

comment Why does Ubuntu still require restart after kernel updates when tools out there mean it's unnecessary?
