Anyone else having problems getting the latest version of Banshee from apt-get? I'm adding the Banshee PPA, using apt-get update, and then trying apt-get upgrade and then to be totally sure, uninstalling and reinstalling Banshee, after purging:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:banshee-team/ppa
You are about to add the following PPA to your system:
PPA for Banshee Team
This PPA contains the latest stable debs of Banshee for Ubuntu. To install Banshee, you must first enable the PPA on your system:
1. Open Software Sources (System->Administration->Software Sources)
2. Navigate to the "Third Party Sources" tab.
3. Click "Add"
4. Enter the APT line below that corresponds to your Ubuntu version that starts with "deb".
5. Click "Add Source"
6. Click "Close"
7. It will prompt you to reload your software cache. Click "Reload".
8. Now install the package "banshee" from Synaptic, or using the command below:
sudo apt-get install banshee

For those who wish to compile from trunk, add the deb-src line and then run "sudo apt-get build-dep" to install all required dependencies before starting to compile.

Unstable (version which have odd minor version numbers) debs of Banshee can be found here:
https://launchpad.net/~banshee-team/+ar ... e-unstable
More info: https://launchpad.net/~banshee-team/+archive/ppa

gpg: key 6E80C6B7: "Launchpad PPA for Banshee Team" not changed

And then apt-get update (sparing you the output there.)

And then apt-get upgrade yeilds nothing. (At this point I have 2.2.0 installed when I want to get 2.2.1 from the PPA above there...

So, I then apt-get purge banshee:

Never had this problem before. I even went and checked /etc/apt/sources.list.d/:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 136 2011-12-17 03:51 banshee-team-ppa-oneiric.list
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 136 2011-12-17 03:51 banshee-team-ppa-oneiric.list.save
<snip>

And the contents of banshee-team-ppa-oneiric.list:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/banshee-team/ppa/ubuntu oneiric main

And, I did check the Packages folder on the PPA -- about six lines down:

Version: 2.2.1-1ubuntu2~hyper1+oneiric

And oddly, the PPA doesn't show up under the Origin tab in Synaptic? But I've definitely added it...?

So, I'm totally stumped... Not sure what's going on here, but any help would be totally appreciated.

No matter what I do, it seems to only grab:

2.2.0-2linuxmint1

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.

    
Also having this problem, no idea why I can't upgrade using their PPA. –  Naftuli Tzvi Kay Mar 22 '12 at 17:32

I just ran in to the same issue. If it's the same problem I'm having you should be able to solve it by selecting the package in synaptic, then go to Package > Force Version in the menu, and select the newest version.
