    Can't install GParted

    apt-get install gparted
    Reading package lists... Done

    Package gparted is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source


    E: Package 'gparted' has no installation candidate

    Have you tried installing it from the Software Center?

    Have tried running an apt-get update to see if your connection to the repos is good?

    Re: Can't install GParted

    There isn’t a software package called “gparted” in your current software sources.
    That's what the software center says.

    apt-get update runs fine.

    Perhaps this is related to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2166511 and I deleted some repo? I just tried installing wine and got the same error.

    Hungry Man, o/

    I think you need to run apt-get update, then try installing.

    Re: Can't install GParted

    What version(13.04?) of Ubuntu are you running?


    Update: If 13.04, it's definitely there. Just checked.

    Re: Can't install GParted

    If your sources.list is borked up then maybe try building a new one.
    Look here
    http://repogen.simplylinux.ch/

    then replace the old with a new one.

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

    But gparted was installing and I got this error

    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems

    Gparted did install though.

    Here's the new sources list.

    Ah you're on Saucy. you should have posted in "Ubuntu +1" since there was likely a breakage with one of the last updates. You're on a development release.
