View Full Version : [ubuntu] Cannot add any apps/Packages not found in 9.10

Hello,
I just did a fresh install of 9.10 (running persistently from a flash drive as I did with 9.04). I'm trying to play an MP3 and as expected I need an MP3 decoder, but the search turns up the following result:
No packages with the requested plugins found.

I have tried doing a sudo apt-get update first and that hasn't resolved the issue.

Just out of curiosity, I tried to install vlc from the terminal:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install vlc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Couldn't find package vlc

I also have noticed that most of the apps in the software center are unavailable (not available in the current data). Is this normal?

I did successfully run the update manager and the system is up to date as of 30 seconds ago.

I have no idea what's wrong here. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
