I downloaded the Minecraft.deb file from minecraft.net and tried to install it first with the normal software installer GUI. What would happen is it would go from 0% to 100% really fast and then the install button would reappear as if nothing happened.

Then I tried the dpkg -i method using sudo dpkg -i Minecraft.deb but it gave me this error:

dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'Minecraft.deb': No such file or directory.

Then I tried doing it with the path: sudo dpkg -i /home/Downloads/Minecraft.deb. Still didn't work. I don't understand why.

You got the following error message:

dpkg: error: cannot access archive 'Minecraft.deb': No such file or directory.

...because the path you typed to Minecraft.deb in incorrect. To show the correct path to Minecraft.deb drag the Minecraft.deb into the terminal or try using the following path instead.

/home/username/Downloads/Minecraft.deb

where instead of username replace it with your own username.

The correct commands would then be as follows:

cd /home/username/Downloads/ # replace username with your own username   
sudo dpkg -i /Minecraft.deb
