handbrake-releases does not have a Release file

Asked by Cariboo1938 on 2021-03-21

Problem:
Cannot update the App "Handbrake"

My Installation:
root@j-hpLaptop:/# lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.10
Release: 20.10
Codename: groovy

My Sources (among others):
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ groovy universe
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ groovy-updates universe

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntudde-dev/stable/ubuntu groovy main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntudde-dev/stable/ubuntu groovy main

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu/ groovy main
# deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu/ groovy main

My Error messages: \
E: The repository
'http://ppa.launchpad.net/stebbins/handbrake-releases/ubuntu groovy Release'
does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore
disabled by default.

How can I update Haandbrake to the same version which is runnung in Windows10, where I can get .avi video files converted to .mp4 video files?

see https://launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/ubuntu/handbrake-releases

This PPA does not provide software for Ubuntu groovy.
You have to remove this PPA from your list of repositories to get rid of the error message.

Eventually you can contact the provider of the PPA and ask why there is no version for groovy (and hirsute)

Thank you! You recommended:
"Eventually you can contact the provider of the PPA and ask why there is
no version for groovy (and hirsute)"

I tried to contact John Stebbins but there is no
contact possible

No public address provided.

Do you know a way how to contact John to ask if he is planning to
make the PPA available for Ubuntu "Groovy"?

There is a "contact this user" box in the top right corner of https://launchpad.net/~stebbins (as it is on every user's page)

Colin Watson (cjwatson) said : #4

You should be able to use "Contact this user" on https://launchpad.net/~stebbins to get Launchpad to send them an email on your behalf.

Thank you for your help!
I made a mistake, because I overlooked the box "Contact this user".
Now I wrote an email to John Stebbins and describe my issue. If I get an
answer I'll post it.

I believe we can close this question as answered now.

OK, But, it is only partially answered, because I did not get a response
from John Stebbins - Handbrake author - yet...

Don't confuse "answered" with "solved".
I agree that the question is not fully solved yet (the PPA does not provide the version that you are looking for), but for the time being there is nothing that needs another answer HERE.
By giving this answer I also set the status to "answered".

Can you help with this problem?
