Hi Folks!

Building a new Frontend and want to install version 31 (because all the 
other units are running v31) but it insists on installing v32 so getting 
schema error, etc.

I set the ppa: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/31

Then: sudo apt install mythtv-frontend

Installs v32.

 From my troubleshooting notes:

sudo apt policy | grep -i myth ==> 31’s are listed

sudo apt policy | grep 32 ==> no 32 found

sudo apt purge mythtv-frontend

sudo apt purge mythtv-backend ==> when was this installed?? I didn’t!

sudo apt purge mythtv ==> nothing to remove

sudo apt autoremove

sudo rm -rf .mythtv <== ahh! hidden file was not removed!!

sudo add-apt-respository –remove ppa:mythbuntu/32 ==> want to remove 32, 
keep 31 – removes stuff

sudo apt policy | grep -i myth ==> 31 still listed

ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mythbuntu-ubuntu-31-jammy.list ==> only 31 listed

sudo shutdown -r now ==> to clear and reset stuff

Per https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Installing_MythTV_on_Ubuntu

apt-cache policy mythtv-frontend ==> Version table: lists 32.0 and 31.0

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mythbuntu/31

sudo apt-get install mythtv-frontend → I’m see “32’s” in the install 
lines!! Yup: 32 again!

So how do I force the installation of version 31? Looked on-line but 
didn’t find anything current/complete (a few broken links).

Frontend specs: Ubuntu 22.04 (Jelly Jammy)

Backend is v31.0-158-g0680b37c68
