Hi I'm trying to install

sudo apt-get install libmagick++-6.q16-5v5

My OS is

Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)
Release:        10
Codename:       buster

When I try to run apt-get update I get the following error.

Hit:1 http://security.debian.org/debian-security buster/updates InRelease
Hit:2 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster InRelease
Hit:3 http://deb.debian.org/debian buster-updates InRelease
Ign:4 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu groovy InRelease
Err:5 http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu groovy Release
  404  Not Found [IP: 91.189.95.85 80]
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu groovy Release' does not have 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.

I ignore this and try to install the libMagick but got the following error

    E: Unable to locate package libmagick++-6.q16-5v5
E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'libmagick++-6.q16-5v5'
E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'libmagick++-6.q16-5v5

Is there anything else I can do to get this to install? thanks advance.

    1. You're running Debian, so remove the ppa entry for Ubuntu and try again. 2. Do you really need that the precise version of libmagick++?

    @roaima good point. I'm on a docker and must have mistakenly added this because I assumed it was an ubuntu dis. Thanks!

The following repository http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu doesn't support groovy codename, that's why you get 404 error. All supported codename are listed here.

The libmagick++ can be installed on Debian Buster through:

sudo apt install libmagick++-6.q16-8

libmagick++-6.q16-5v5 belongs to Ubuntu Xenial.

    thanks this solved it. As commented above I made a mistake by putting in ppa for ubuntu. So apt update works now after removing it. However, thanks to your answer I now have libmagick installed.

(Converted from comment.)

You're running Debian, so remove the ppa entry for Ubuntu and try again.

Do you really need that the precise version of libmagick++? If not, try installing libmagick++ rather than libmagick++-6.q16-5v5
