For those of you using the Ubuntu Studio Backports Repository, we recently had a major update of some tools. If you’ve been using the Backports PPA, you may have noticed some breakage when updating via normal means.
To update if you have the Backports PPA enabled, make sure to do the following:
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade
“Full Upgrade” removes and installs certain items to make this update work.
Here’s what has been updated:
- Ubuntu Studio Controls is now known as Studio Controls and is updated to version 2.0. As such, ubuntustudio-controls is now a dummy transition package to get you to the new version.
- Ubuntu Studio Installer, since it depends on Ubuntu Studio Controls, is updated to depend on Studio Controls instead.
- LSP Plugins are now based on the upstream version in Debian to cut-down on Ubuntu Studio dev workload. This has a slightly different package structure and may cause errors when trying to update via the standard “sudo apt upgrade” method.
Additionally, the Ardour Backports have been updated to Ardour 6.2, so if you’re using the Ardour Backports PPA, you should be upgraded to that as well.
Thanks for your understanding, and we apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused if you tried the standard PPA upgrade method and experienced errors.
