See Err:6 above. I tried to do a ppa-purge:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:shutter/ppa

Warning:  apt-get update failed for some reason

Apparently I'm doing something wrong, but I don't know what it is. Any suggestions are appreciated.

The target of your ppa-purge command is invalid.

The problematic PPA is ppa:shutter/ppa.

To remove it, use:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:shutter/ppa

Assuming there are no other issues, you can update your system:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

I edited the body of the post to show what happens with the suggested ppa-purge. I'm still looking for help with this as it is still not working.

There are a number of other ways to remove PPAs or sources. Try [this answer]( or [remove them]( from your sources list by manually deleting or commenting the lines. If none of these help, can you tell us how you added this PPA to begin with?

I was able to remove the ppa via ``` sudo apt-add-repository --remove ppa:shutter/ppa ``` at that point I could then update and upgrade my system. Thank you Nmath
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
