Ubuntu :: Apt-get - Unable To Locate Package Emacs23
Oct 25, 2010
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.
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.
To start, I am a very new user of ubuntu, so please bear with me. I just installed ubuntu on an old desktop and cannot get it to install packages. I installed these same packages on my laptop that is a little newer and it works on the laptop, but it wont work on the desktop. I searched for previous threads and found to try
I also tried this many times and nothing has changed
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.
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?
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.
after alot of work with my system, I've gotten most of it working It's a Toshiba C655-S5049 with a Atheros AR9285 Wireless card, so lots of fun getting that to work, anyway I'm trying to update my system, and it wont update, if I try update manager it won't do it because it's dealing with restricted drivers, and if I try in terminal I get E: Unable to locate package updateAnyway, any suggestions? 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.
Cannot install updates. Click on icon which says 65 updates available but update manager opens and is blank and frozen .Reboot and same results. apt-get install updates says Unable to locate package updates. Everything has worked perfectly upto now I am running Squeeze.
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.
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.
I'm getting this when I try to do an upgrade in Adept in Kubuntu:APT Error. Context:Package download failed,I wasn't able to locate file for the libvolume-id0 package. This might mean you need to manually fix this package.
When I try apt-check in the console, I get this: The package libvolume-id0 needs to be reinstalled, but I can't find an archive for it. How do I manually fix this package?
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.
I am trying to install Photorec / testdisk I am entering this in terminal sudo apt-get install testdisk sudo apt-get install photorec For all these i am getting a message, "E: Unable to locate package testdisk" and similar message for Photorec. I tried this even for Foremost but i am getting same message. how do i get to open and work on these packages?
I'm trying to install my tvcard [url] on a freshly installed maverik minimal installation, i had no problem gettin the lib32ncurses5-dev package on lucid, but after i got maverik i cant seem to find it. i was on 64bit (sudo apt-get install libncurses5-dev)
I got Squeeze installed and choosed all the options at the installation ste like (web server, mysql server, DNS server) and then I am trying to get VHCS installed on the machine. apt-get install vhcs , is not working for me. I gues I have to add a source address to my sources.list file. All the manuals I've found so far for debian and vhcs is for debian etch or earlier and those sources they given arent working for me. I still get the message where it says "unable to locate package vhcs. What is the source address I can download VHCS?
I type in root, it says root is not currently installed and tells me what to type in to install it; I type that in and I get the error message "Unable to locate package root-system-bin"... I'm using Ubuntu 10.10 and I just installed it onto an older HP laptop...
Today I did a fresh installation of Ubuntu 10.04 server (64bit) on my machine and found that CTRL-c (i.e., control key plus c) does not work in emacs 23.1 (from emacs23 package), which means I cannot quit the emacs by "CTRL-x CTRL-c" any longer.
Whenever I type CTRL-C, the emacs says "<cancel> is undefined". The "describe key (i.e., CTRL-h k)" command for CTRL-c leaves the following message in the message buffer: "<cancel> (translated from C-c) is undefined".
Until 9.10, I have never had such problems and wonder whether this has been introduced by 10.04.
In fact, I found that the behavior of CTRL-c has been slightly changed in a terminal (e.g., putty session) as well, and googling gives the following: [URL]
But I'm not sure the above has something to do with the said issue with emacs.
