I want to get ruby on rails on ubuntu 12.04 but I'm coming across errors that say I need to to update. I've copied the result of the end of update and not included the earlier part. I can add that if it is needed.

When I run rvm requirements this is the error I'm seeing.

This PPA was renamed at some point, and might actually be an issue with Launchpad. It's possible that browser hits redirect but files do not.

Currently, the "opencv2" repo redirects to "opencv2.2". 2.4 is actually more current. If you wanted 2.2, it's possible the repo is "dead" because of this. This will install 2.4.

  • Remove the PPA

sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:gijzelaar/opencv2

  • Install the direct PPA

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:gijzelaar/opencv2.4 -y

  • Update your sources

sudo apt-get update

  • Retry your command.
