Lutris PPA not reachable?

today apt complained it could not update as it was not able to read the lutris ppa that I installed a while ago as described on Download Lutris for elementary os.

Also the PPA link there ( now shows a launchpad info claiming that the page does not exist

is something broken?



I’m experiencing the same problem.

Same here (Ubuntu 20.04.5)

apt update shows:

Err:19 focal Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
Reading package lists… Done
E: The repository ‘ focal Release’ no longer has a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can’t be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

Same here.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lutris-team/lutris
ERROR: ppa ‘lutris-team/lutris’ not found (use --login if private)

YEP - same problem here, wish i checked here first instead of spending an hour trying to repair :slight_smile:

Err:12 focal Release
404 Not Found [IP: 80]
E: The repository ‘ focal Release’ does not have a Release file.

Remove the lutris ppa, lutris exist with apt, so no need to add the ppa.

what? it does not seem to exist in ubuntu focal packages
are you sure? you might mix it up with debian (which contains lutris packages)…

I guess they decided to discontinue the ppa, the download page now doesn’t even mention it, they direct ubuntu users to get the deb package directly from github.

on the lutris subreddit I found a comment to a github issue (Ubuntu PPA misses latest version · Issue #4296 · lutris/lutris · GitHub) where it says

“I have shut down the PPA because there is no one to maintain it. Please grab the latest deb from the releases page on Github.”

they suggest using the deb package directly, as now described on the lutris download page. And deb-get if you want automated updates (Inform users of deb-get installation option by philclifford · Pull Request #4561 · lutris/lutris · GitHub)

so for us not so NIX savvy whats the best approach for this ?
remove it ? or set it up for the new source ?

thank you in advance.

Get the new release “wget
install, “sudo dpkg -i ./lutris_0.5.11_all.deb”

also could, remove old ppa, “sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/lutris-team-ubuntu-lutris*”

It’s funny, though, how the devs are checking reddit, but not their own official forums… Three days and no official response here. And why didn’t they announce this change through official channels, anyway? Why do we have to dig around the internet for finding this out?
