Thank you for your response. Before I do install the sane-git ppa I
would like to inform you that I do currently have the sane-release ppa
installed. I have enclosed a screenshot of update manager displaying
this information as well as the underlying packages from sane-release
that are currently installed. -> Software Sources ->
sane-project/sane-release -> open ->
libsane1,libsane,libsane-common,sane-utils are all 'ticked'. I have
verified they are installed .........

1. If I enable the sane-git ppa I could possibly have conflicts between
it and sane-release ppa. I have experienced this before actually and
received some great help with the issue.

2. Can I ask what the safest way to proceed by doing this would be?
Possibly I can simply untick sane-project/sane-release in software
sources and add the following through the terminal by following the
steps below?:

    Adding this PPA to your system

You can update your system with unsupported packages from this untrusted
PPA by adding *ppa:sane-project/sane-git* to your system's Software
Sources. (Read about installing

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sane-project/sane-git
sudo apt-get update


Thank you for your assistance.
