I am trying to install blender 2.8 from here. I've run:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:thomas-schiex/blender sudo apt-get update
However, when I run
apt search blender, it still shows me the version 2.79 version from the official
I would try and specify the exact repo, but this ppa names the release as
bionic main, i.e. super generic terms that overlap with the official names.
I've tried removing the sources.list file so that only the blender package in the ppa repo would get found, but that doesn't work either (Blender is simply not found at all). It seems as though the ppa is not seen by my system.
Edit: Result of
apt-cache policy blender:
blender: Installed: (none) Candidate: 2.79.b+dfsg0-1ubuntu1.18.04.1 Version table: 2.79.b+dfsg0-1ubuntu1.18.04.1 500 500 http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports bionic-updates/universe arm64 Packages 2.79.b+dfsg0-1 500 500 http://ports.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-ports bionic/universe arm64 Packages
sudo apt update confirms that we're hitting the ppa:

... but it's still showing only version 2.79 as an option.
