While I am installing pyqt5 ,using the command sudo apt-get install python-qt5,in terminal there comes a message with

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package python-qt5

What is the reason? Hope anyone will help?

  • The reason is that there is no python-qt5 package in the Ubuntu repos. – Pilot6 Jul 1 '17 at 13:59

The correct package name is python-pyqt5.

So run

sudo apt install python-pyqt5
