    Why is the bitcoin gone?

    I just notice that when I would upgrade to 14.04 that my bitcoin client would be removed. Does Trusty didn't have the official Bitcoin-client in it?

    The Ubuntu Trusty Software Centre has Electrum Bitcoin Wallet and Bit Ticker. What Bitcoin software do you want? Application such as these are the responsibility of their own developers and not Ubuntu developers.

    The package probably gets removed because of package dependency issues. You just need an updated package...

    I'm talking about the bitcoin-qt package. In 13.10 it is there, but in 14.04 it is missing. Electrum isn't compatible to it and when I try to locate in launchpad I'm reading the status "Superseded" in 14.04.

    You can add their official PPA and hope they'll add Trusty support soon.
