I fully agree with Harrisou. Installation and update issues pop up all too often.
I consider myself an experienced Linux user, and have installed and used QGIS for over a decade, and still with almost every version update of QGIS I find myself reshuffling *.list repo files to get everything working again. Sometimes the problem is caused by GRASS updates not synchronized with QGIS updates. But the bottom line is recurring confusion.
English is my mother tongue, so that's not the cause of the confusion for me...
In my opinion, the ideal situation would be:
1- A collection of stable geo software maintained in the regular ubuntu repositories. So users who want the "LTR" version do not need to add anything to the sources.list.d. Thus the ubuntugis-ltr would become unnecesary
2- User's wanting the newer "unstable" version would add the ubuntugis repo, as explained in qgis.org, and would get a collection of more recent versions of the geo stack. And thus there would be no need for the "ubuntugis-unstable" repo.
3- And a third repo - ubuntu-dev aimed for developers.
I realize that there are lots of dedicated people doing great and thankless work in all the packaging behind the scenes, and I certainly don't mean to criticize their efforts. But it seems that some consolidation might be helpful.
