So the thing is I'm trying to install Cmake and cmake-curses-gui. I have updated the system with apt-get-update.

sudo apt-get install cmake   
Reading package lists... Done   
Building dependency tree   
Reading state information... Done   
Package cmake 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 'cmake' has no installation candidate

sudo apt-get install cmake-curses-gui   
Reading package lists... Done   
Building dependency tree        
Reading state information... Done   
E: Unable to locate package cmake-curses-gui   

That's strange. Can anyone give some pointers?

  • cmake is in the repositories, I suggest you run sudo apt-get update first. – Panther Apr 9 '13 at 17:15
  • As I mentioned earlier, I did that before many times. But still the same output. Any ideas? – user159618 Apr 9 '13 at 17:29

    @user159618 What is the result of apt-cache policy cmake cmake-curses-gui? – Braiam Aug 15 '13 at 13:51
  • You mention apt-get-update I hope it just typo mistake in the question. It should be apt-get update or just use update manage graphic interface. – user.dz Nov 23 '16 at 10:49
