I run sudo apt-get install filezilla on Lubuntu but it comes back saying it can't locate the package. Specifically E: Unable to locate package filezilla3

I've tried updating, clearing, and updating again, but it can't find it. Haven't been able to find anyone else with this problem. FileZilla says to try using the package manager to get Filezilla. I tried their binary, but it asks for me to choose something to run it. I do get a few lines during an apt-get update that say it can't initiate connection.

Oh and I tried ./filezilla with the binary, it said file not found.

I am using version 19.04 of Lubuntu.

Output of apt-get update

Help greatly appreciated.

    • Your version of Lubuntu is … ? • Instead of "I do get a few lines during an apt-get update" provide actual output. • And do you have the universe repository enabled? – DK Bose Jun 27 at 2:16
  • Lubuntu version is most recent. Adding output now. – ConductedForce Jun 27 at 2:17
  • packages.ubuntu.com/… (most recent I assume is 19.04; but please be specific as many people see 18.04 (3rd most recent) as the most recent as they only count LTS releases...) If you can't work out your issue, posting apt-cache policy filezilla may help us to help you, verify your source (current, out-of-date mirror etc) – guiverc Jun 27 at 2:19
  • apt-cache policy filezilla comes back with N: Unable to locate package filezilla – ConductedForce Jun 27 at 2:23

    Well this LOOKS like your system has no IPv6 upport and that's resulting in NOT getting updates right. Do you have an IPv6 address or no? You may need to force IPv4 for APT by default – Thomas Ward Jun 27 at 2:31

Had problem on home network, special thanks to comments for solution: sudo apt-get -o Acquire::ForceIPv4=true update

Forces IPv4 for apt-get.
