Linux Mint does not provide the option to remove a ppa.
If you try it, this will be the result:
sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:somePPA/ppa Usage: add-apt-repository [options] repository add-apt-repository: error: no such option: --remove
But you can still manually remove a ppa in Linux Mint by removing the file that defines it. All ppa are defined in /etc/apt/sources.list.d . So you can do the following:
# find the correct ppa file to delete by listing all ppa files: ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d # delete the ppa that you would like to remove: sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/some-ppa-to-remove.list # update sudo apt-get update
And that is it, you should now have removed the ppa.
