Ok, I am new to Ubuntu. Lightdm stopped working, so I pressed Ctrl + Alt + F1 to open up the graphical log in screen and typed in
sudo apt-get remove lightdm which worked but when I type
sudo apt-get install lightdm it goes like this
jackshaw@jackshaw-stormfly:/$ sudo apt-get install lightdm Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package lightdm is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'lightdm' has no installation candidate
Thanks, any advice would be appreciated.
I have typed in cat /etc/apt/sources.list and the output was this
