In this tutorial we will see the commands used in the Ubuntu terminal to remove / purge PPAs installed from unofficial sources using this command:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:[PPA]

Method 1

Let's suppose we have installed a PPA with this command:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:user/repos

To delete this PPA, we need to use this command:

sudo apt-add-repository -r ppa:user/repos

Then update your rpository list with this command:

sudo apt-get update

Method 2

This method consists of using the "ppa-purge" command line utility for removing PPAs. You can install it with this command:

sudo apt-get install ppa-purge

Then remove any PPA with following command:

sudo ppa-purge ppa:user/repos

Then do an update with the following command:

sudo apt-get update

That's it!
