    What next?
    Seems like it might have installed correctly though -- try running:
    Code:
    ppa-purge -h
    Do you get ppa-purge's help page?

    Seems this source is still blocking its own removal...!?

    You have an issue with the list - I'd follow #13 for the moment

    You could follow #14 but then I think that the ppa purge will fail as well - and we have no idea what you've done yet
