You want to install kde-config-telepathy-accounts, but this packages contains the file /usr/share/accounts/services/google-im.service.

No package will typically be updated beyond the major version shipped with the initial release of the distribution. Minor updates may be released provided changes are not significant, and security fixes from newer versions may be back-ported to maintain compatibility. You will find that some packages independently offer newer major versions from their own ...

There's no team-viewer package in Ubuntu repositories, you need to download the .deb file from their website and run these commands: cd ~/Downloads sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_i386.deb And then if installation fails because of a dependency issue: sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -f sudo dpkg -i teamviewer_i386.deb

Just a suggestion, Not sure if it should help but, if you frequently install packages from .deb files it's advisable to use a reliable package handler like Gdebi However, if you like to browse for apps and install them from the same place, you should stick to Ubuntu Software Center. To trash Gnome-Software and install the classic and trusted Ubuntu Software ...

There already exists command apt-cache dumpavail which will list all available packages from all enabled repositories. Behind the scenes it actually reads from files stored in /var/lib/apt/lists/ directory (I've done strace of the command, and that's what the output shows) . My guess would be that Gnome Software parses those very same files and organizes ...

You are probably looking for aptitude. If this is not installed in your system, go ahead and open a terminal and type sudo apt-get install aptitude then sudo aptitude to start it. If you want to search and filter results with grep, you can use either sudo apt-cache search or sudo aptitude search

The Hamachi download page states that "Note: The Linux client can now be installed without LSB package.", therefore it appears that the dependency on lsb-core has been dropped. Download the .deb file for Hamachi again and install it using sudo dpkg -i.

Note that this answer only applies for Ubuntu 16.04 and newer! As of Ubuntu Xenial 16.04, most of the LSB tools and packages have been removed except for lsb-base and lsb-release. As such, lsb-core and the rest of the packages from the lsb source package do not exist (the other two do. The removal reason is documented in the package's NEWS entry from ...

There's Mycroft that's open sourced but is strictly marketed as for selling for living room, rather than adapting OS to user. I feel like this is a good measure as to how Linux compares to other OS, and AI would definitely be welcome as Linux is not at all user friendly by virtue of being "rich" in Open Source.

Changing the permissions might work: sudo chmod -R 0644 /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ UPDATE: I previously set the mode to 0420, which worked in my case, but per comments and further testing it seems that 0644 is correct.

This is because your system is busy installing updates. That's why you get an error using apt-get. Just let everything finish updating and it will work.

It seems you have sources defined in you sources.list file that are not present anymore, cause your mentioned llvm repo gives a: APT mirror was temporary switched off due to excess load. We are working on bringing it back. Stay tuned! so you could wait or deactivate the ressource in software-properties-gtk and try the mentioned things again... after ...

No, this line is not a valid line in /etc/apt/sources.list. Just remove it.

sudo apt-get install gdebi-core Note that in general you can search for packages using: apt-cache search <search_term> So for example: apt-cache search gdebi returns info on the gdebi-core, gdebi (GNOME GUI), and gdebi-kde (KDE GUI) packages.

On my 14.04 wine and playonlinux are respectively in the "universe" and "multiverse" repositories. Check that you have these enabled in your software sources.

I gave an answer in this thread (the only difference being the terminal you want to use).

You should delete the medibuntu.list file, since the medibuntu repositories are no longer supported or maintained, and are now obsolete. You can do so by typing sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list In a terminal. Let me know if this works.

Also, will the packages in the classic one be up to date? There will be no difference - you will get the same packages either way.

It will be safe to remove gnome-software, apt tells me it will only take out the package gnome-software and nothing else, I tried it, it was removed and the system is fine sudo apt purge gnome-software To add the old one back run sudo apt install software-center All packages will be exactly the same, it is based off you repositories, not the center its ...

Canonical decided to pull the plug on the Ubuntu Software Center in version 16.04. The Ubuntu Software Center has now been replaced by the Gnome Software Center. You can still install software there just like when Ubuntu still had USC. I hope you find what you are looking for. Good luck.
