Does this work in Debian?

Asked by OwN on 2018-05-22

Does this PPA work in Debian? I really need to get Apache 2.4.26+ installed on Debian 7, 8, and 9 as well.

Here's an error log when I try to use this PPA on debian:

Edit, evidently asking a question doesn't link the question to the PPA's answers page, so the PPA is:

Sorry, this launchpad question system isn't very straight forward as far as I can tell.

Try replacing the release indicator from "cosmic" to "bionic" in the sources.list file for the PPA

see for the Ubuntu releases and release names.
Bionic is the current release, cosmic is the work-in-progress version to be published in October 2018.
Most PPAs do not yet provide software for that release.

Yep, this works on Debian 9:

sed -i "s/cosmic/xenial/g" "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ondrej-ubuntu-apache2-cosmic.list"

Thanks for your help and for the information. The Debian community is rather toxic on the other hand:
