Hi While executing the command at root -

apt-get install alien 

I get below errors (page not found)

Can you please fix / help

Err http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-updates/main libc-bin i386 2.15-0ubuntu10.6
  404  Not Found [IP: 80]
Err http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise-security/main libc-bin i386 2.15-0ubuntu10.6
  404  Not Found [IP: 80]

As you can see at


, this version is not in the repo anymore. This is most probably caused by an outdated apt cache, i. e. you haven't issued an

apt-get update

before. Try it again with

apt-get update && apt-get install alien

    It sometimes also helps to add --fix-missing, as in apt-get update --fix-missing && apt-get install <package>. – Brent Faust Feb 20 '19 at 18:08
