  3. PPA in OP invalid. ppa:qbittorrent-team/qbittorrent-stable worked for me instead. Just installed 3.2.0 on 14.04. Please update your article.

      • PPA still not working — Cannot add PPA: ‘ppa:hydr0g3n/qbittorrent-stable’.
        Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.

        • @Dave
          It seems your machine is behind proxy, you need to import your proxy settings this way..

          export http_proxy=http://username:password@host:port/
          export https_proxy=https://username:password@host:port/

          Make sure to replace username, password, host and port in the above settings and after that run the following command to add PPA.

          $  sudo -E add-apt-repository ppa:hydr0g3n/qbittorrent-stable

  5. This instructions currently are not valid… Hydr0g3n ppa repositories (stable or trunk) they not contain any valid deb file of qbittorrent for Ubuntu Saucy (13.10)… Just a remind to anyone out there wondering why they cant update their qbittorrent 3.0.11 version from the official ubuntu repositories…

    Hydr0g3n ppa (qbittorrent) stable or trunk are broken for ubuntu 13.10…

    • Hi,

      I am the current qBittorrent maintainer.

      Are you sure that the .debs from the PPA don’t work for 13.10? The PPA shows that the debs have built ok for it.

      I don’t actually have 13.10 to test. Could you come to our forums and detail what does not work?

      Thank you.
