Ubuntu Stable PPA loop

Asked by matbroadbent on 2010-07-26


Further to Question 114149 and Bug 592154, it's possible to get the the new PPA Purge feature of 0.5.5 stuck in an update -> reinstall -> update loop:

Ubuntu Tweak's PPA Purge tab is recommending the removal of the "Ubuntu Tweak Stable Source". When I select it for removal, I'm advised that I'll be downgraded to Once the downgrade is complete, and Ubuntu Tweak has been restarted, of course there is no PPA Purge feature available. If I re-enable the Ubuntu Tweak Stable Source to get the latest version, I'm told that 0.5.5 is available. I can upgrade, restart Ubuntu Tweak, go to the PPA Purge tab and begin the purge/downgrade process all over again.

Am I using this feature incorrectly? Is there something in my sources.list that's screwing this up maybe?

Thanks! Your idea is right, PPA purge should be notified when user disable one source. It's more smart, and only when needed, user should access to the Cleaner page.

I will improve follow this way.

Ok TualatriX. Thanks for responding. :)

Can you help with this problem?
