I'm trying to resolve a problem with wireless connectivity on my Toshiba C55-C-184 laptop. I asked about this problem here.
It looks like the problem is with the Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 network controller. I've found a couple of posts that suggest making sure that the latest versions of linux-firmware and linux-firmware-nonfree are installed.
When I install linux-firmware I get
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done linux-firmware is already the newest version (1.157.8). 0 to upgrade, 0 to newly install, 0 to remove and 21 not to upgrade.
so all seems OK there. But when I try to install linux-firmware-nonfree I get the following:
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package linux-firmware-nonfree
which is clearly not so good.
I did a Google search, and it seems that the package does, in fact, exist, so why can't I locate it?
As always, any help will be appreciated. Especially if you can explain why it's not working as well as how I can go about fixing it. I'm always looking to expand my working knowledge of Linux.
