This question already has an answer here:
Needing to download 'traceroute' for some work that I have to do, I tried to download the package using 'sudo apt-get install'. After looking online, I saw that I might have to update the software but that didn't work either. Any ideas?
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install traceroute Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package traceroute is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'traceroute' has no installation candidate ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install update Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package update
P.S. inetutils-traceroute is not working, therefore I need another answer to be able to download the package.
