I cannot install shutter:

$ sudo apt-get install -f  shutter

Ubuntu version is 12.04 LTS - "Wubuntu" standard install. I have not added any other repositories.

Running: apt-cache policy shutter libxml-simple-perl libxml-sax-perl libxml-libxml-perl libxml-sax-expat-perl results in:

Installed: (none) and 500 http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise/main amd64 Packages 

for each of those packages.

What to do next?

After adding mirrors to my sources configuration:

  1. sudo apt-get update
  2. sudo apt-get install -f

and shutter is installed.
