[chirp_users] PPA and auto CHIRP update/upgrade 'issue'

There is no repo yet for 19.04.
Usually when a new *buntu version is released it takes a while for the 
Chirp maintainers to add a new repo for the new version.

You can try going to "Software & Updates" (or editing the sources.list 
file) and replace "disco" with "cosmic" in the chirp repo line then apt 
update and install it.

Otherwise you can install Chirp locally and not use the Ubuntu Launchpad
