I was trying to download a video from YouTube using youtube-dl, but I got the sig error, so I tried to update youtube-dl to the latest version and it wasn't working. I'm sorry, I don't remember what the error was or what it said in the terminal when I tried to update. So I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling youtube-dl. The uninstalling part worked fine, it's the installing part that I need help with now.
I tried typing
sudo apt-get install youtube-dl and I get this:
Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done youtube-dl is already the newest version. 0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 3 not upgraded.
So, I assumed that that meant that I had it installed, but when I tried to use it, nothing happens, or rather I just get this:
root@chaaaaaaarlie3:~# youtube-dl https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eISomx-VMow root@chaaaaaaarlie3:~#
and the video obviously doesn't download.
I have been trying to fix this problem for a while now and I have no idea what to do. I also have almost no knowledge of how to use terminals/Ubuntu/computers/things of that sort, so if you could be very specific when helping me, I'd appreciate it. (Okay, I'm not COMPLETELY stupid, but I really don't know much. Let's just say that youtube-dl is the ONLY thing that I use the terminal for >.> )
I'm not sure if this would be what's messing up my attempts to use youtube-dl, but I think I uninstalled youtube-dl and it's dependencies and I may have purged my local/config files for youtube-dl too. I can't really remember all that I did last night when I was trying to fix this...
