Another method would be using the = operand in apt-get/aptitude:

sudo apt-get install duplicity=0.6.21-0ubuntu13
sudo aptitude install duplicity=0.6.21-0ubuntu13
  1. http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=duplicity

    enter image description here

  2. so we want the raring version: http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/duplicity shows:

    enter image description here

  3. The i386 leads to: http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/i386/duplicity/download and the amd486 leads to: http://packages.ubuntu.com/raring/amd64/duplicity/download where you will find the actual .DEB file for download.

  4. In short:

and after it finishes double click the download and Ubuntu Software Center will do the installation. This does not always work for any download: it is possible that a package depends in something else that is not installed. The 2nd link above (this one) shows what packages it depends on.

  • Thanks for your response. I get a error though. it reads 'wrong architecture amd64' this is when I download the i386 from your 4ht point and my pc is i386. I also tried the amd64 download and get the same error. – Rubi Sep 19 '13 at 11:53
