    Question E:Unable to Locate Package

    I have noticed this thread before, but a solution was not found. I am getting the following error upon running a script:

    Install-LoL-on-Wine.sh: 33: Install-LoL-on-Wine.sh: gnutls-cli: not found
    "gnutls" not installed.

    Which leads me to try:
    sudo apt-get install gnutls

    Resulting in:
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package gnutls

    I had several other packages missing, and I was able to install them using this method. gnutls however seems to pose a challenge. Any idea how to install it?

    Use the right package name

    From a terminal

    Code:
    apt-cache search gnutls
    or try a search for gnutls - first result from googlubuntu

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/GnuTLS

    which would imply that

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gnutls-bin
    will help.

    You can also search for packages here
