I installed from cd a fresh ubuntu server 12.10 (FYI: amd64)
I need ubuntu-desktop. So I did run as per doc.
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop
I keep getting unable to locate ubuntu-desktop the same message for vim-full and phpmyadmin and other packages.
ping www.google.com works fine
tasksel works fine and can upload and update
Any idea ?
do I need something in /etc/apt/services.list ? if so please specify full line(s)
the exact message is:
E: Unable to locate package packageName
where packageName is any package, the one I wanted at first are either:
Then I tested with other packages it gives the same message.
I did already what you are suggesting e.g.
sudo apt-get update
and even the :
sudo apt-get upgrade.
It does not work.
I cannot cat the sources.list I have no KDE (I'll have to type it).
No need anyway It's a Fresh install on a fresh PC from a fresh download from ubuntu.com burned on a CD.
The thing is the standard sources.list is missing something and the question is what are those deb and deb-src entries that are missing.
