    ubilinux distribution is a debian based distribution which is not supported anymore.

    The ubilinux PPA is for Ubuntu only and it provides Ubuntu modified kernels for UP on Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04.

    Please follow the installation instructions from our wiki: https://wiki.up-community.org/Ubuntu

    Thank you for your comment. I followed instalation instructions and upgraded my UPBoard to Ubuntu 16.04 . But now I have another issue there. I am using mraa library and uart serial communication with my custom HAT . ( 40 pin header -pins 8,10 (UART1) )

    I already sucesfully run command : sudo usermod -a -G dialout ${USER}

    however, in my program (c code)
    does not work anymore. It worked in ubilinux perfectly.

    Can you help mi this too, please ?
    Tahnk in advance.

    Hey folks, I am a super newbie, just as an FYI.

    I am trying to install the Ubuntu kernel with "sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubilinux/up" and it tells me '~ubilinux' user or team does not exist.

    Please advise.
