I am trying to install svn and am running into issues. The command I am running is
sudo apt-get install svn. When I run this, I get the error "Unable to locate package svn". Why is this? How do I fix it?
The package is called subversion (abbreviated
svn). You've to install it by running:
sudo apt-get install subversion
This package contains the
svnserve daemon too (not started by default). If you want to host a subversion server over HTTP, you must install
apache2 and configure it accordingly.
apt-get is an amazing package manager, but often the names of packages aren't exactly named the way you would expect. (Obviously not the fault of apt-get) for example, downloading java isn't
apt-get install java.
as for your issue, the name of the svn package in apt-get is subversion.
apt-get install subversion
have fun with your subversion needs!
