This question already has an answer here:
I am a Linux newbie trying to setup Lubuntu 16.10 on my Dell desktop. This forum has helped me learn a good bit about Linux and Ubuntu in the last few days.
I'm now having trouble getting app packages to install and was wondering what I'm doing or not doing wrong. I have a couple of applications I've downloaded, they are:
When I try to install them, it opens software manager app, I click on " install and it does nothing. Doesn't confirm install, nothing seems to be added to the system. Then I back out of the software app and on the top of the window where it has 3 tabs - •All, •Installed, and •Updates I see under •Installed tab there is a blue 2 highlighted. Also I am not connected to the internet and a message popped up saying a software update was needed to show all installed apps. Could this be why?
