    Unable to locate package

    I am trying to install aircrack but when I try to a get an error message that says unable to locate package. The exact messages are:
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ airmon-ng
    The program 'airmon-ng' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
    sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng
    You will have to enable the component called 'universe'
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install aircrack-ng
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package aircrack-ng

    I am pretty new to ubuntu so I am not really sure what I am doing. I don't know if I have to enable "universe" or what I should do. I am not sure if it matters but I am also running Ubuntu from my flash drive so maybe that is the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
