Hi Randal,

It's a little bit confusing. There are like three repositories:
stable, unstable, and testing. Testing you don't want (unless you
want to test packages). Typically stable is a bit older. Unstable is
current. Which doesn't really make sense - but that's the way it is.
Not like it matters much in this case.

We have packages in qgis.org/debian/ against the plain versions of the
distributions (debian and **ubuntu**) and in qgis/ubuntugis/ packages against
newer dependencies from - and only from - ubuntugis-unstable.

Looks like it's hard for people to accept that there are also ubuntu packages
in a directory called debian and that probably makes them jump on the other
because it has ubuntu in it's name.

I don't think the confusion is between Debian and Ubuntu. Most Ubuntu users know that their OS is Debian-based. The problem lies in that there are three different repos which offer QGIS: the base ubuntu packages, qgis.org and the ppa. And the last two are split into separate stable, unstable, and testing where "unstable" (in keeping with the Ubuntu policy) is actually the current stable package.


Under my /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory I made a qgis.list file
and put the following in there:

deb http://qgis.org/debian xenial main
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/ubuntugis/ubuntugis-unstable/ubuntu xenial main
Why?  That are the packages not based on ubuntugis with the dependencies from
ubuntugis.
