I am trying to install handbrake on my raspberry pi 3 running Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 4.15.0-1041-raspi2 aarch64). I keep trying all kinds of ways to install handbrake onto my pi, but everything is to no avail. The internet seems to have a consensus on doing it the following way below, but I keep getting the error E: Unable to locate package handbrake-cli. what does this mean?

sudo apt-get install handbrake-cli

E: Unable to locate package handbrake-cli

On Ubuntu platforms, there is an official HandBrake PPA, and thus you can install HandBrake directly from the PPA as follows.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install handbrake-gtk handbrake-cli
  • Unfortunately, this was the command I was running for hours in various different ways. I am thinking it is just not supported on the pi. – Daniel L. VanDenBosch Nov 11 '19 at 13:49
