Ubuntu: Removed repository still being showed in synaptic origin section



Question:

I'm sure to have correctly purged a certaing ppa: it doesn't anymore appear in sources.list nor in sources.list.d folder.

It doesn't even appear in Synaptic's repository list, but if I open the "Origin" section, it is always there, with the full list of its packages (all not installed, of course).


Solution:1

I believe this is by design. The origin section allows you to view packages by repository (origin).

Just because you are no longer using it doesn't mean it doesn't exist....
