Ubuntu 9.10 USB Pendrive everything works good even after sudo apt-get update and I try to sudo apt-get install dsniff and I get the following message:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install dsniff
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package dsniff

It's not finding the package for some weird reason. Please help I like 9.10 Ubuntu and want Dsniff to run on this failing to fetch packages.

The reason why you can't find the package you want is because 9.10 has reached its end of life and its repository has been removed - actually its been moved.

You can follow the instructions provided in this question and answer for installing dsniff for 9.10.

Try to install dsniff from a deb package.
