  1. Sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps
    Command ‘Sudo’ not found, did you mean:

    command ‘ludo’ from snap ludo (0.11.2)
    command ‘udo’ from deb udo (6.4.1-5)
    command ‘sudo’ from deb sudo (1.8.31-1ubuntu1)
    command ‘sudo’ from deb sudo-ldap (1.8.31-1ubuntu1)

    See ‘snap info ‘ for additional versions.
    I’m not a Noob but still I can get confused. I’m using Ubuntu /20.4 LTS modified using Unity It works fine but I could use a better software center. I approach everything with caution and always update before and after repo. installs, making sure outdated software no longer used gets purged. Snap is new to me coming over from Ubuntu Unity 16.4.6 LTS. The current software center I’m using (flokk) has limited software packages. So what I’m asking is for the right reading material (A-Z to work this out. There’s a lot of short help sessions but if I’m going to learn Linux I need the right reading material. Just to make it interesting I do use Arch, but languages are good as long as we use them frequently and since it’s only me, well you get it. Thanks for the comment box and I hope someone is listening.
