Is there any crypto-archive that has TrueCrypt 7.1 for Ubuntu?

(am so used to just doing; ' sudo apt-get install truecrypt '
which doesn't work anymore because it's no longer on the truecrypt or sourceforge site)

Recently installed ubuntu on a new laptop after Truecrypt was no longer available.

Have read cautionary warnings about LUKS and UBUNTU"

"UBUNTU INSTALLER: In particular the Ubuntu installer seems to be quite willing to kill LUKS containers in several different ways. Those responsible at Ubuntu seem not to care very much (it is very easy to recognize a LUKS container), so treat the process of installing Ubuntu as a severe hazard to any LUKS container you may have. "


If anyone has a backup copy for Ubuntu please let me know.
