I've been trying to install
gcc-4.4 (needed for compiling old software I use) on a new system that is running Ubuntu 16.04. The command
uname -m gets an answer of
aarch64 since the system has 64-bit ARM CPU cores. I only have access through ssh (no graphical desktop), but I am able to run commands using sudo (such as
sudo apt-get install gcc-4.4).
Unfortunately, even looking at answers to similar questions in this forum and spending several hours surfing the web for ideas, I cannot manage to install gcc-4.4. I'm not a sys-admin or Linux expert, so please be gentle. I want to learn.
Here's the error message:
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install gcc-4.4 [sudo] password for ubuntu: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information...

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package 'gcc-4.4' has no installation candidate ubuntu@ubuntu:~$
