[Solved]Stuck at v30

Post by Eauwwooo » Wed Jul 22, 2020 5:45 pm

Ubuntu 16.04
Running MythTV v28 and finally decided it's time to get up to the latest version. I have an issue of my own creation and I'm not sure how to fix it. I can't seem to get from 30 to 31. Any help is appreciated.
Here's how I got to where I am:
1- Added the repository for v31... except oops typo: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/30 (30 instead of 31)
2- Ok, try that again: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/31
3- Opened software updater, and updated.
4- Ran MythTV frontend and it's version 30.
5- Opened software updater again, no updates found.
6- Removed v30 repository. No updates found.

Any ideas as to how I can easily get v31 installed?

First do a full disk backup just in case.
Do a distribution upgrade to 18.04
or
Sometimes it's just quickjer to a new install.
New install of ubuntu 20.04LTS.
apt-get install mythtv

If you do a fresh install of 18.04 or 20.04, consider using Mythbuntu Control Panel and use the ppa to install v31.

Thanks to both of you. I was able to do an update to 18.04 and then upgrade to MythTV 31.
