    eh. normally there is a notice below it saying how to install it. – Rinzwind Apr 30 '17 at 21:05

Try to change the server to main server

Open System settings > Software & Updates > Ubuntu Software > make sure you have all the source selected (main, universe, restricted, and multiverse) and select download from Main server.

Now try again sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install curl


Normaly, it is sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install curl at 16.04.

It should work @xenial, if not, you have the wrong sources installed.
