also note that the OwnCloud CLIENT is not available in any Ubuntu repo
-- the "official" client repository is at OpenSUSE.

I've had trouble getting my OwnCloud client to update lately because
of an authentication error with the repository and I haven't yet

composing this message, and got a "down for maintenance" error from
the server.
