Hi Paul!

Semi-apologizing for the delay in replying: tried a few options and 
apparently I need to have my hand held to figure out the above 
instructions. Posted my notes at 
https://app.box.com/s/c36i4nmocdwkllxvkc9j2l5bxb7vegeu   (PDF format)  
so you/others could see what I thought I should be doing.  Basically 
Part 1 is using the 'without Ansible' option to install (what I'm 
guessing are the) dependencies, then compiling the source code.  Got an 
error message which seems to say I am missing dependencies but can't 
because they're not installable.

So frustration break and on to Part 2.  Well, side-trip to Part 1a: saw 
there's "2:31.0+fixes.202203040619.7e4ce1ba98~ubuntu22.04.1"  which 
seems to be what I want to install but unable to figure out how to get 
to the page to download.

Now to Part 2 (my notes: "Restart here" in the black line). Install 
using Ansible, then compile the source code again.  And ends with pretty 
much the same error.

... Am I having problems because of this:

cat    /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mythbuntu-ubuntu-31-jammy.list
deb https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/mythbuntu/31/ubuntu/ jammy main
# deb-src https://ppa.launchpadcontent.net/mythbuntu/31/ubuntu/ jammy main

No idea why the second one is commented.
