I tried installing python-requests earlier using
sudo apt-get install -y python-requests
and I get
Unable to locate package python-requests
I know this is a common question, but I've tried everything I could find: I ensured I have all repositories enable (Main, universe, etc.). Next, I tried installing python-pip in order to use pip instead of apt, but I got the same error when trying to install python-pip as with python-requests. After that, I used
sudo apt-cache search python-requests sudo apt-cache search python-pip
to try to see if I had the name wrong or something, but could not locate either. I tried installing
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
as some stackoverflow question recommended in addition to running
sudo apt-get update many times. Additionally, I ensured that my standard
python does indeed point to python-2.7.
Any help would be much appreciated!
