       clean - Erase downloaded archive files
       autoclean - Erase old downloaded archive files
       check - Verify that there are no broken dependencies
       changelog - Download and display the changelog for the given package
       download - Download the binary package into the current directory
      -h  This help text.

      -qq No output except for errors
      -d  Download only - do NOT install or unpack archives
      -s  No-act. Perform ordering simulation
      -y  Assume Yes to all queries and do not prompt
      -f  Attempt to correct a system with broken dependencies in place
      -m  Attempt to continue if archives are unlocatable
      -u  Show a list of upgraded packages as well
      -b  Build the source package after fetching it
      -V  Show verbose version numbers
      -c=? Read this configuration file
      -o=? Set an arbitrary configuration option, eg -o dir::cache=/tmp

    pages for more information and options.

    No, that command does something totally different.

    Go into Software Sources. Switch to the Other Software tab. Click Edit on one of your PPA sources. Many PPA creators don't bother updating their listed distributions for oneiric so you need to put natty or whatever for the distribution line.

    Really though you need to go the PPA's webpage to verify what distribution is supported. When you're there, click the "Published in:" dropdown to see which are supported.

    Generally, you can still use packages built for older releases although there are exceptions. Unity in Oneiric uses GTK3 so I don't think old "indicator" status menus work in Oneiric for instance.

    you can also just go into your /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d/* and start commenting out the lines that conflict

    I have this bash script to check every release supported by PPA in your sources. You need to "apt-get curl zenity" before running it.
