I'm trying to install KVM\qemu on Ubuntu 18.10.

According to this page I'm running the command:

apt-get install qemu-kvm libvirt-bin ubuntu-vm-builder bridge-utils

and get an error about the packge "libvirt-bin" and "ubuntu-vm-builder":

E: Package 'libvirt-bin' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package ubuntu-vm-builder

I see that the package "libvirt-bin" is available.

The main repository is set. Anything that I'm doing wrong? Couldn't find any info regrading this issue.

Is it the new Ubuntu version (18.10)?



You are correct: The libvirt-bin package was dropped in 18.10.

Quoting from https://lists.debian.org/debian-user/2016/11/msg00518.html

The package was split into two parts:



In most cases you probably want both of them at the same time.

so instead of libvirt-bin use libvirt-daemon-system libvirt-clients
