Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

This is what happens:

sudo apt-get install vlc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package vlc

Please help. I would also like to know when this error occurs, I've seen it before too.

Open a Terminal an type the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe"
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc

Vlc was not found because it's only available in the universe repository.
