Apologies for the late answer. We had to switch to the PPA ages ago 
(since some time in 2013), since the regular Ubuntu DKMS-module made 
occasionally troubles with Ubuntu kernel updates. So the switch for us 
was at the same time when 1.8 appeared in the PPA. Looking back, it was 
on the 25th of April 2018 - we had to change our "apt-get update" line 
to something like this, before it worked, though

apt-get --allow-releaseinfo-change-label update

Without that, Ubuntu 18.04 wouldn't accept the name-change of 'OpenAFS 
1.6.x stable releases' to 'OpenAFS stable releases (1.8.x)' (Ubuntu 
14.04 and 16.04 accepted it without that)
