So i have to install libgnuradio-osmosdr0.1.4 package for a project but it gets me this error:

$ sudo apt-get -y install libgnuradio-osmosdr0.1.4

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package libgnuradio-osmosdr0.1.4 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libgnuradio-osmosdr0.1.4' has no installation candidate

I tried apt update, but it doesnt work.

I am on ubuntu 20.04 and amd64

See the packages for Ubuntu for libgnuradio-osmosd: You need libgnuradio-osmosdr0.2.0 for all Ubuntu other then 18.04/Bionic.

If you can not use 0.2.0 then that means your project needs an upgrade to support it. That is the safest method; you could add the "universe" repository for 18.04 to your system and install libgnuradio-osmosdr0.1.4 from that and pin it but that is a temporary band-aid.

  • Thank you, it worked.
