I recently installed the latest version of Ubuntu using the alternative downloads page as I didn't have network connectivity during the installation process. After a successful install, when I try to run some basic commands, I get "ubuntu server says package is not available but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted". I did some research online to find out that the most likely solution to this is to update my apt repo, however without internet connection I have not been able to run sudo apt-get update successfully.
I have wireless internet available, but Ubuntu hasn't even been able to detect my interface. Ubuntu is the only OS I have in the machine. From the information I have gotten online, the commands that I need to get my interface working return the same error, "ubuntu server says package is not available but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted", and since I can't update I don't know how to go forward from here. I don't have access to any ethernet connection.
Please I need recommendations on other options to gain access to the internet.
