I am on Ubuntu 12.04 and am trying to install bugzilla3. I did:

sudo apt-get install bugzilla3

and I get:

E: Unable to locate package bugzilla3

What's going on here?

Figured it out. I had to add one of the repositories listed here to my /etc/apt/sources.list file.

This is what I added:

deb lucid main
deb-src lucid main
deb lucid universe
deb-src lucid universe

Bugzilla3 isn't in your repos, apparently. Try changing them, updating them, etc. I recommend using Synaptic, typing in a part of the package name, and seeing what comes up to be sure you have the name right. Muon works too, I used it to check just now.

Yep, I ended up adding the Lucid repository and I got it. Thanks! – Di Zou Aug 3 '12 at 2:37

Open your terminal and run this command:

sudo apt-get update

Then try again.
