I've been trying to create a bootable pen drive for the windows 10 may update on my ubuntu laptop for my PC. I'm running the 19.04 version of ubuntu. Since the windows iso needs special processes to be burned to the usb I'm required to install the woe-usb open source package.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install woeusb

But I keep receiving this error

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package woeusb

I've searched throughout Stack Exchange and ask ubuntu but I have ended up empty-handed.


Update 2019-05-23 15:44 UTC

I have contacted Alin Andrey via LaunchPad and the ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 currently have woeusb package for 19.04 (disco).

So you can install it as usual:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get install woeusb

Also the WoeUSB package exists in ppa:tomtomtom/woeusb PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomtomtom/woeusb
sudo apt-get install woeusb

Note: to prepare this answer I have used special PPA search page on LaunchPad.net - https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas .

  • This library is installable with sudo apt-get install libwxgtk3.0-0v5. On my system it was previously installed. Added this to the answer. Will contact PPA owners. – N0rbert May 23 '19 at 15:26

Dependency is added in version 3.3.0-1 in my ppa.

Thx for reporting the issue.
