Can't update git from 1.7

I've done the following, yet my git --version is still on

Step 1: Add the Official PPA provided by GIT
$sudo add-apt-repository ppa:git-core/ppa

Step 2: Update the Repository
$sudo apt-get update

Step 3: Install GIT 1.9.1
$sudo apt-get install git

My server is running 2.1.1.

How do I properly update my git?


Be excellent to each other!

Re: Can't update git from 1.7

Ubuntu is NOT Debian, so adding ppa's is always risky regarding system breakage. With that Duty of Care warning out of the way ( wink ) did you add the ppa key?

Git 1.9.1 is in wheezy backports. Installing from backports is much safer than trying to use a ppa.
