I want to download and install a driver for an ET-2750 Epson printer. The instructions indicate I need to download and install lsb first. When I try, I get this response; Reading state information... Done Package lsb is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source

E: Package 'lsb' has no installation candidate. Any suggestions?

  • Please run sudo apt install -f! Then try again... – George Udosen Dec 12 '18 at 19:06

  • I'm really not used to a comments section that posts a comment every time I hit the return key. I tried running the lsb command and I still get the same response. sudo apt-get install lsb Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package lsb is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'lsb' has no installation candidate. I do appreciate the help but I'm not sure where to go from here. – C.Daniels Dec 13 '18 at 15:59
  • Enable universe repo with command sudo add-apt-repository universe, then sudo apt update and finally sudo apt install lsb and let me know hoe it goes! – George Udosen Dec 13 '18 at 16:19
