When I attempt to install chromium-browser, Ubuntu tells me that it does not exist:

enter image description here

The Ubuntu Apps directory doesn't list 16.04, and when I click the download button, it results in the error Package 'chromium-browser' is virtual.

I'm in a live environment, because I want to debug an issue with one of my Chrome extensions.

I know this has been asked before, but either my situation is different or the previous solutions simply don't work anymore.

  • sudo apt install chromium-browser doesn't help?

  • @Anwar No, that results in what my screenshot is showing Sep 14 '16 at 13:54

chromium-browser resides in the universe repository, which is not enabled in the live environment.

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list to include the universe repository and retry the installation.
