Package cutegram 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 'cutegram' has no installation candidate


If I install it manualy via .deb the app shows up, but do not open.

It looks like Cutegram development and maintenance had been abandoned.
The latest version available is 2.7.1, and it's been release in Jan 2016.

The ppa:aseman/desktop-apps doesn't have any packages for the latest releases.
The only currently supported release Cutegram is avalable for is Trusty - 14.04.
I'd recommend removing that PPA, as it's useless.

PS: Installing packages intended for another release is a hit and miss game, it may or may not work due to unmet dependencies or updated libs.

  • Yes, but still the "best" alternative telegram for ubuntu. there is no other, where u can use secure chat accept the pidgin-plugin "telegram-purple" - but this plugin is very weak and buggy. Cutegram also works on 16.04. – Hansi88 Apr 15 '17 at 21:54

The answer is obvious: the ppa:aseman/desktop-apps PPA does not have anything for Ubuntu 17.04.

The last distribution supported by that PPA is 15.10 (Wily Werewolf). You can try to install the Wily version by running:

cd /etc/apt/sources.list.d
sudo mv aseman-ubuntu-desktop-apps-zesty.list aseman-ubuntu-desktop-apps-wily.list
sudo nano aseman-ubuntu-desktop-apps-wily.list

Replace all instances in the file of zesty with wily, then save it. Now run:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install cutegram
  • I tried, but shows me <pre>W: GPG error: ppa.launchpad.net/aseman/desktop-apps/ubuntu wily InRelease: The following signatures were invalid: BA4DCD29162C7544D706080B801DC115C117080D E: The repository 'ppa.launchpad.net/aseman/desktop-apps/ubuntu wily InRelease' is not signed. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
