I seem to be having issues installing ffmpeg on my server machine, I have tried multiple resources online including adding different PPA's but none of them seem to have worked so I have since removed them. Basically, when I do the command sudo apt-get install ffmpeg, it gives me the error message of E: Package 'ffmpeg' has no installation candidate. Any assistance would be wonderful, thank you so much! Note: I looked at other questions regarding this, and none of them seem to have this issue on this version of ubuntu

DK Bose's comment works on Ubuntu 18.04.2 server.

sudo add-apt-repository universe && sudo apt upgrade

Then sudo apt install ffmpeg will succeed.
