Ubuntu :: Apt-get - Unable To Locate Package Emacs23Oct 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.
