Download from GetDeb.net Via apt-get

Get Deb

This method is now out-dated! To find out how to add the official GetDeb V2 repository, please view this post:GetDeb V2 Beta

Just thought I'd share this quick tip with you here. I find this very helpful, and saves a lot of time.

The first thing to do is edit the /etc/apt/sources.list file, and add the following line to it:
deb http://ubuntu.org.ua/ getdeb/

Once saved, run the following command to update & upgrade:
sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade

Once the above commands have been ran, you will see that any packages that you have downloaded from GetDeb.net will have updated. I find this a lot more easier then downloading the new release, and installing it.

I have found that GetDeb.net does often go down, so if you happen to receive a 404 error when using apt-get update, your best option is to just forget about the error, and try again at a later date.

Any problems with this, then please do leave a comment, and I'll help you out.
