I'm trying to install some packages:

vagrant@vagrant-ubuntu-raring-64:~$ sudo apt-get install ipython ipython-notebook python-pipsudo apt-get install
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package python-pipsudo
E: Unable to locate package apt-get
E: Unable to locate package install

And that's the error that I get. What's wrong here?

what's wrong here exactly what the error says: the package you're trying to install doesn't exist – Joren Nov 2 '13 at 20:24

You copied the same command... twice. This is what you should have run:

sudo apt-get install ipython ipython-notebook python-pip

at the end of your command you added sudo apt-get install again. This produced the errors of the packages:

python-pip + sudo = python-pipsudo
