I only started using Ubuntu 2 days ago and I am not exactly sure what it means. Can someone please help me?

    You are using apt-get instead of dpkg. BTW you should not need to install openvpn by manually downloading a DEB file, it's in the repositories. – Andrea Lazzarotto Nov 18 '16 at 12:13
  • By in the repositories does that mean I can just install it straight off the bat? How would I go about doing that? – SDKASDASKDASLDKASDLKAS Nov 18 '16 at 13:09
  • dpkg -i openvpn-as-2.1.4b-Ubuntu16.amd_64.deb worked. Thank you :) – SDKASDASKDASLDKASDLKAS Nov 18 '16 at 13:16

Finally got it working with the following command:

dpkg -i openvpn-as-2.1.4b-Ubuntu16.amd_64.deb
