Ubuntu :: Apt-get - Unable To Locate Package Emacs23


I just changed (not upgraded, I made a clean install on a new hard drive) from 9.10 to 10.10 and I have a serious problem. I just can't install new packages. Neither apt-get nor synaptic can find any package. I either get a "E: Unable to locate package <package_name>", or "E: Package <package_name> has no installation candidate" For example when I type sudo apt-get install emacs23 , I get this output: Quote:

Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package emacs23 And the synaptics package manager only lists the packages I already have. I searched these forums and googled my error message, but I couldn' t find anything helpful. The only thing I know is that this is not a network/proxy problem, I am behind a proxy but I have set the http/https/ftp_proxy environment variables, and I have a working network connection, as I am actually posting from the same computer.

Ubuntu :: Package Installation Error / 'E: Unable To Locate Package Xxx'
I am following this guide to installing eclipse via terminal command-line on Linux. However, this seems to be happening lately with all the packages I try to install..I checked the Synaptic Package Manager and reloaded and rebooted the computer, but to no avail.

Ubuntu :: Unable To Locate Package
I'm trying to install Ruby on Rails on an Ubuntu desktop VM. The network connection works ok but I can't seem to get this to work:

sudo apt-get install ruby1.9.2

I want the latest version of Ruby.

Is this because I haven't enabled some repository or something - I dimly recall having to 'enable universe' before now... but can't remember why or how....

Ubuntu :: Unable To Locate Package Nvidia-glx-new?
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 and trying to install CUDA. Everything is working fine except it looks like some openGL components are missing; when compiling the CUDA code samples I get the error

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lGL I went online and it looked like 'sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-new'

would take care of this but then I get the error from the title of this post, that it can't be found. I'm afraid I'm a poor hand at installing components with Linux .

Ubuntu :: Unable To Locate Package Contacts
when ever I use the terminal to install a program (for example Ubuntu-tweak) I end up with this line E: Unable to locate package (then the program name),this has also happened when I've updated through the terminal. (I've since installed Ubuntu-tweak via the link on its site).Let me say this my little box has a banging Internet connection. And I have a full almost brand new installation maverick meerkat.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Locate Package?
I just reinstalled Xubuntu 11.04, and I'd like to install fluxbox:

Code:
09061920@system:~$ sudo apt-get install fluxbox
[sudo] password for 09061920:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree

[Code].....

in /etc/apt/sources.list, but I'm on a very slow connection so I don't want to update 42 MB right now (trust me when I say I'm on a very slow connection ).

how to update just the updates necessary for apt-get without having to update the 42 MB of, for the moment, pointless updates?

Ubuntu Installation :: Error 'E: Unable To Locate Package Gcc'
I installed a command line version of Ubuntu 10.10 using the alternate install disk. To suit my needs, I have to install the gcc C compiler in this environment. When connected under root, I enter the command: 'apt-get install gcc'. The error 'E: unable to locate package gcc' is then displayed on screen. how to install gcc? Is this package available from the alternate install disk or do we have to download it. If I dowbload a tar file, where should I copy it to to be able to have the install application see it?

Ubuntu Servers :: Error: Unable To Locate Package?
I have installed the latest server (Ubuntu 10.04). When I tried (including sudo apt-get update first followed by sudo apt-get install virtinst) I get Unable to locate the package virtinst. It also did it for a few others as well. The apt-get update command is successful (on the console it says it is Done). I have network connection (no proxy) and I am able to ping other systems at home and outside world. So I don't believe it is network issue.

I've been trying to work this out, and it's getting annoying. The key Drivers that I'm also looking for are, Video:Intel 4500M HD Integrated with Dynamic Sharing Audio:IntelAudio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03) Also, does anyone happen to know how well battlefield 2 will run in wine? it ran pretty good on windows, just wondering how it will do in ubuntu.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Aircrack - Unable To Locate Package ?
I am trying to install aircrack but when I try to a get an error message that says unable to locate package. The exact messages are:

The program 'airmon-ng' is currently not installed.

You can install it by typing:

I am pretty new to ubuntu so I am not really sure what I am doing. I don't know if I have to enable "universe" or what I should do. I am not sure if it matters but I am also running Ubuntu from my flash drive so maybe that is the problem.

Debian Configuration :: Unable To Locate Package Pop3d ?
I have some problems to start my dovecot server on Debian 6.0.1 I tried to install it from webmin using "un-used modules" but it was allways the same error: "E: Unable to locate package dovecot-pop3d".

When I tried to install it from console using the commands: apt-get install dovecot-imapd dovecot-pop3d dovecot-common - and there are no problems with dovecot-imapd and dovecot-common, but still the same error with dovecot-pop3d: "E: Unable to locate package dovecot-pop3d".

I did apt-get update ant apt-get upgrade but I'm receiving still the same error when I want to install pop3d.

It's interesting because there were no problems to install and run dovecot server on earlier versions of debian.

Ubuntu Installation :: Unable To Locate Package Nfs-kernel-server / Source For It?
I am an extremely new Ubuntu Server user. I am trying to install NFS on a new Ubuntu Server 10.10 installation. When running the command sudo apt-get install nfs-kernel-server nfs-common portmap, I was previously getting the message:

E: unable to locate package nfs-kernel-server

I'm sure I don't have the correct sources for installation, I just don't know source I need to add.
