Has been resolved ubuntu18.04 no tup source


#3

Just updated my laptop to ubuntu 18.04
Have the same problem. Still no sources for tup.
How can we solve this. Do I need to go back to older ubuntu.
Or build tup for source, is not working yet have missing packages


#4

Fixed the problem install libfuse-dev and tup will build


#5

It should be possible to work around this by using the repository of an older distribution.

Based on [1] you can try to edit /etc/apt/sources.list. I don’t have an Ubuntu machine with root access at the moment so I can’t check but see if there’s a line related to the tup PPA. If you find it, change bionic to xenial.

Meanwhile @madcowswe mailed the maintainer of the package to ask if he could update it.

The guy updated his PPA now, so I think it will work on 18.04 from now on.
