wireshark is in the universe repository:

sudo apt-add-repository universe
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wireshark

enter image description here


Pretty important, after installing Wireshark, run:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure wireshark-common

(see https://ask.wireshark.org/questions/16343/install-wireshark-on-ubuntu)
