ppa for ubuntu 18.04 / 20.04

Asked by Patrick Landolt on 2020-05-18

There is some confusion (at least for me) regarding the ppa. I used the duplicity-team/ppa but that stops working. 0.7 is eol and wont have a ppa, correct? What about the 0.8 series? Is there or will there be a ppa for that? Or what is the recommended way to install duplicity nowdays?

Thank you for your work!

There are multiple options both stable and daily:

* Stable tarball install - https://launchpad.net/duplicity/+download
* Daily duplicity PPA - https://code.launchpad.net/~duplicity-team/+archive/ubuntu/duplicity-develop-git
* Stable duplicity PPA - https://code.launchpad.net/~duplicity-team/+archive/ubuntu/duplicity-release-git
* Stable snap builds - “sudo snap install duplicity —classic"
* Latest snap builds - “sudo snap install duplicity —classic —edge"
* Latest pip3 builds - “sudo pip3 install duplicity"

NOTE: UNinstall duplicity first if it was installed via the distribution repository. For Ubuntu that would be "sudo apt-get purge duplicity".

Thanks Kenneth Loafman, that solved my question.

Multiple of these options don't work.

* Daily duplicity PPA - failing build, no release
* Stable duplicity PPA - failing build, no release
* Latest pip3 builds - Not relevant for 18.04, no pip3

Working on the Catch-22 that is Launchpad... duplicity needs tag metadata to build its version number, LP does not provide that data.

As to pip3, you can also use "python3 -m pip install duplicity" instead of pip3.
