I am trying to install the reference package via "sudo-add-apt-repository ppa:" but whatever I try to enter in the location is wrong. I don't see the location anywhere in the package description. Please direct me as to how to discover the ppa location. Thank you.

    What leads you to believe that such a PPA exists? – user535733 Nov 25 '17 at 23:55

  • The location is on that page, in the section below the description called "Adding this PPA to your system". Just tried it - works. – user535733 Nov 26 '17 at 17:46
  • i did those commands earlier and it did not work for me. If it worked for you, I must have some other issue. Consider this closed. Thank you for your time. – Rambog Nov 26 '17 at 19:48

You have mis entered the command - you entered sudo-add-apt-repository ppa: but the correct command is shown below. These commands should be entered in a terminal window. To open a terminal press Ctrl+Alt+t

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bitcoin/bitcoin
sudo apt update
sudo apt insall bitcoin-qt bitcoind

The first command adds the repository, the second updates repository lists on your computer. The third command installs bitcoid-st and bitcoind, and the final command closes the terminal window.
