opam 2.0 has been release for a while. I was wondering if there is any repository for installing it on Ubuntu (18.04 LTS as of Oct 2018).
I searched on bing.com and couldn't find any mention. The OPAM website itself says the current supported version is 1.2.2, but listed under the "Other" category,
Distribution Latest OPAM Maintainer Notes
Ubuntu Linux (PPA) 2.0.0 Anil Madhavapeddy (@avsm) Anil's official OPAM PPA Travis and discuss post
But the linked website therein show no recent activity (with the last being 151 weeks ago). Trying
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:avsm/ppa also gives an error below.
Does anyone know how to use the repository correctly?
