Why can't I upgrade to PHP 7.3?
apt-get fails to install the php7.3 package:
# apt-get install php7.3 Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package php7.3 E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'php7.3'
I have followed these instructions including overriding locale settings during
“`# LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
Co-installable PHP versions: PHP 5.6, PHP 7.x and most requested extensions are included.
