Is there a package for coturn? If yes, what repository should I add?

I googled and I got this http://packages.ubuntu.com/vivid/coturn or http://packages.ubuntu.com/xenial/coturn.

I enabled universe repository (sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe" or sudo add-apt-repository universe) and then run sudo apt-get update.

Running sudo apt-get install coturn, I still get E: Unable to locate package coturn.

I have Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, but vivid packages are for 15.04. Is there some way that I can still use them?

To answer your question, yes: there is a package for Coturn. You don't need to add any repositories because it is already in the official one. The 2 links you found are from the official repository, and can be downloaded manually.

Since you are on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and the packages are only available for 15.04 and newer, they are not included in your repository because they are incompatible. Nothing is stopping you from manually downloading them, but you would likely have compatibility issues with many other packages.

To be more precise, Vivid is for 15.04, Wily is for 15.10, and Xenial is for 16.04 LTS.

This package is not included in 22.04 due to a bug, but a patched version is available for 22.10 "kinetic". There is also an unofficial backport repository at https://launchpad.net/~ubuntuhandbook1/+archive/ubuntu/coturn

  • It is not present in 22.04. It was present in 18.04 and 20.04 thou.
