Hi Myron,

I don't know what's happening. Given the recent news surrounding Ubuntu and
the Software Center, I would suggest to just using the PPA.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

Wolf

Hi Myron, I've got the same issue.
Once you have executed
`$ add-apt-repository ppa:w-vollprecht/ppa`

a new file called `w-vollprecht-ubuntu-ppa-{release-name}.list` is added in the folder `/etc/apt/sources.list.d`

If you take a look at https://launchpad.net/~w-vollprecht/+archive/ubuntu/ppa
you will see that last uberwriter release matches "ubuntu vivid" release.

It forces you to edit this file under /etc/apt/sources.list.d and fix the ubuntu version as well.
Please notice that that file may contain 2 "apt" lines:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/w-vollprecht/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/w-vollprecht/ppa/ubuntu YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION_HERE main

you just got to update "YOUR_UBUNTU_VERSION" with any of the releases having a published uberwriter release (from "precise" to "vivid", according to https://launchpad.net/~w-vollprecht/+archive/ubuntu/ppa

Cheers

And probably you may add the repository key with
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys E746E8D7

If it fails reporting an unsigned repository Release, just use `dpkg` instead of `apt-get`.

Can you help with this problem?
