I've been trying to install terminator for my ubuntu 18.04, but I couldn't install it with apt and after adding ppa:gnome-terminator, in apt update I get this error:

Err:8 http://ppa.launchpad.net/gnome-terminator/ppa/ubuntu bionic Release
  404  Not Found [IP: 80]

There is no bionic release in ppa.launchpad.net/gnome-terminator/ppa/ubuntu/dists/.

How can I install Terminator?

  • The PPA you added stopped being supported after xenial (16.04) so why was it added? PPA's are 3rd party personal package archives meaning security (checking they support your release, the maintainers can be trusted & are reliable etc) is all on you. That PPA should not have been added (no release file because bionic (18.04) is not supported!). – guiverc Dec 19 '19 at 13:01

    packages.ubuntu.com/… shows terminator is available in default repos (if 'universe' is enabled), no PPA required) – guiverc Dec 19 '19 at 13:03

  • @N0rbert that helped, but didn't solve my problem. I've found the correct answer. – no746 Dec 23 '19 at 5:51

I used this answer, but I still couldn't install the terminator. I was checking my "Software and Updates" and I saw that in "Ubuntu Software" tab, the "Canonical-maintained free and open-source software (universe)" is not selected. I select it and after sudo apt update, I could install terminator using sudo apt install terminator. Ubuntu Software
