This question already has an answer here:
I have not been able to update my packages for a while now. After I run the
sudo apt-get install update command, the server tells me:
Reading package list... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: unable to locate package update`,
And I am also not able to install a GUI probably because of the same problem.
I am using Ubuntu server 14.04 LTS connected to the internet.
