Ubuntu – The noip2 (no-ip.com) package was deleted from the repository, now what


The No-IP websites still provides Ubuntu users with an installation guide that uses Aptitude, but the package noip2 has been deleted from the repository.

Is there a way to find out why a given package got deleted from the repository?

Is it possible that it will come back or has to be resubmitted by No-IP.com?

easy just compile follow this guide to compile Linux Dynamic Update Client (DUC) on your Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

How to install No-IP Linux Dynamic Update Client (DUC) on your Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

You will be able to install No-IP.com’s DUC in just a few minutes with terminal. Once you have opened up your terminal window you will need to login as the “root” user. You can become the root user from the command line by entering "sudo -s" followed by the root password on your machine.

cd /usr/local/src/
wget http://www.no-ip.com/client/linux/noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
tar xf noip-duc-linux.tar.gz
cd noip-2.1.9-1/
make install

You will then be prompted to login with your No-IP.com account username and password.

If you get "make not found" or "missing gcc" then you do not have the gcc compiler tools on your machine. You will need to install these in order to proceed.
