Trouble adding tor repo to ubuntu noble (24.04 LTS)

My /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tor.list reads thus:

deb [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/tor-archive-keyring.gpg] https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org noble main
deb-src [signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/tor-archive-keyring.gpg] https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org noble main

When I try to update with the /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tor.list set to noble, I get with apt update:

Ign:4 https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org noble InRelease
Err:5 https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org noble Release
404 Not Found [IP: 2620:7:6002:0:466:39ff:fe32:e3dd 443]
Hit:6 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu noble-backports InRelease
Reading package lists... Done
E: The repository 'https://deb.torproject.org/torproject.org noble Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

So I thought maybe putting in focal instead of noble as the distribution would work. And it did. until I tried to install tor and got:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
tor : Depends: libssl1.1 (>= 1.1.1) but it is not installable
Recommends: tor-geoipdb but it is not going to be installed
Recommends: torsocks but it is not going to be installed
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.

Is noble not going to be in the tor project’s repo? Or did I do something wrong that I can fix?
TIA,

Hello, it is a known issue. Ubuntu Noble is very recent and packages for it haven’t been released yet. You can track the issue here:

Thanks very much! Ended up rolling back to a previous release that was supported, and that is working fine.

Hi all, Any chance to get Tor from deb.torproject.org for Ubuntu Noble (24.04 LTS, released April 25, 2024) in the future? i.e. “tor_0.4.8.11-1~noble+1_amd64.deb”
