Libre Office Base does not come installed with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. It is not in the Ubuntu Software repository. The questions on this are all over a year or two old.

I need a database for Ubuntu. I'm concerned that Libre Office Base might not work with 16.04 or it would be in the repository.

What can the experts recommend for a full featured (and free) database for Ubuntu 16.04? I know you do not recommend Open Office which was my pre-Ubuntu database.

Thank you for giving me the correct name to pull it up in the repository. I had search for Libre Office Base, and nothing came up.

It is now installed.
