I've just installed ttf-mscorefonts on ubuntu 18.04 server (not desktop) by running the following command:

sudo apt install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Everything seems to have installed correctly.

Apparently, in order to get the system to recognise these fonts, I need to run

sudo fc-cache -f -v

However, that throws the following error:

sudo: fc-cache: command not found

You have to install "fontconfig" package:

sudo apt install fontconfig

Now you should be able to use fc-cache.
