I recently downloaded an Ubuntu 9.10 virtual appliance for VMWare and want to install a LAMP server on it. Normally, I would just
sudo tasksel install lamp-server but that seems to just return without doing anything. So I tried
sudo tasksel to bring up the list of packages. But this list only includes three options... Print server, Ubuntu desktop and Manual package selection. I thought maybe it was in Manual package selection but I didn't see it. I'm pretty new to Ubuntu (and linux in general) so I'm not sure where to go next. The only posts I've found about missing options in tasksel says it just suddenly started showing additional options the next day...
Why don't I have all the options I usually do (like LAMP server)? How can I get these options back?
