I have updated my system to 16.04 and installed a load of updates.
I have had version 1.54 of boost libraries on my computer since November 2013. Today I rebuilt some code and it could no longer find the boost regex library.
So I have tried updating to the latest version, but keep getting this error:
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package libboost-all-dev
It does appear that it should be in the repository. I did not install boost this way originally but went to their own site and probably built it with some "wget" command. (I may try doing that and get their latest version which is 1.61, whereas the packaged version here is 1.58).
Still, I want to know why the above will not work.
sudo aptitude install libboost gives me the following feedback:

sudo add-apt-repository universe but it still could not find the package.
I was able to install the libraries one-at-a-time, but still question why it is not there when this page suggests it is.
