I have installed sage from ubuntu ppa into my 32-bit ubuntu as described at but it did not update since 5.8.

How regularly this repository is updated? Will 6.0 be there?

I maintain the PPA. As no longer provides Ubuntu 12.04 32bit binaries, I no longer repackage 32bit. I hope that is fixed over the next few months.

In the meantime, get a binary for 13.04 on, or build from source.

Regards, Jan

The ppa repository is quite frequently updated. As you can see on this page, the currently abvailable version is 5.13, which is the one right before 6.0. Note that for a non-developper, the 6.0 version does not offers more functionality than 5.13, since there are only changes concerning the development workflow, not the mathematics features.

Then something is wrong with my system. I have ensured the repo is in the sources.list, and apt does not complain on update, but looks that it does not update actually. Sorry for taking your time.

No, That is all fine with my system, except that it is 32 bit, and for 32 bit architecture there is NO 5.13 version of Sage in PPA !!

Thanks for the precision. You are right, according to [this page](, 5.13 was not built for the i386 architecture.
