I want to upgrade Banshee from version 2.0 to 2.6 on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid. When I run sudo apt-get install ppa-purge I get the error message
E: Couldn't find package ppa-purge.
I am following instructions given in

You are using a command for 11.10+ for 10.04. That might work but more than often does not.
Looking at the packages on ubuntu.com
ppa-purge can be found in
lucid-backports and not in
lucid: http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid-backports/utils/ppa-purge So you need to add the backports to your sources. Please read the wiki page thoroughly. Enabling Backports Manually can be done by adding the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid-backports main restricted universe multiverse
After that a (one time)
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
should update your resource and the
apt-get install ppa-purge should work on your system too.
