I have problems with installing haskell (hugs) on Ubuntu 10.10. I had the latest version before and I wrote just sudo apt-get install hugs and everything worked. But now with Ubuntu 10.10 It tells me that package hugs could not be found.

How can I install hugs then?

You will need to type sudo apt-get install hugs as the Package does exist in 10.10 Alternatively you can download it directly APTURL
