Bug Description

I'm running Ubuntu 14.04, and Ubuntu One has been removed. Unlike it's Mac and Windows counterparts, there is NO WAY to install Ubuntu One from the website, and the PPAs have not been updated for trusty, leaving me no way to install Ubuntu One to retrieve all of my synced files prior to Ubuntu One shutting down. Please fix this ASAP. Users are going to be *very* upset if they upgrade to Ubuntu 14.04 before they have backed up their files on Ubuntu One and discover that they can no longer do so. Using the clunky web interface is not a viable option when you have many gigabytes of data to recover.

FYI--For anyone else struggling with this issue, I was able to install the missing packages from here:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/amd64/ubuntuone-client/13.10-0ubuntu2
https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/trusty/amd64/ubuntuone-control-panel-qt/13.09-0ubuntu2

Unfortunately you will need to download and install them (and all their dependencies) manually.
