I have a couple of VMs running loaded with Ubuntu and it would be a lot easier if i could manage them all from a Web GUI.

I did find this question How do I install Landscape for personal use?

But when I try to add the PPA I am getting this:

Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:landscape/15.01'.
Please check that the PPA name or format is correct. 

So if LDS isn't free anymore is there then an alternative where I can upgrade the packages and see the state of the servers?


LDS is still free and that PPA is still available.

I just confirmed by running the following on an up-to-date trusty machine:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:landscape/15.01
  • hmm that was odd mabey their repo was down when i tried Jul 22 '15 at 8:07

    Could be. When there are network issues, the add-apt-repository tool doesn't print out a good error message. Jul 22 '15 at 19:25
