    [SOLVED] firefox-2 is not available for ubuntu 80.4

    hello,

    I've been trying to install firefox-2 under ubuntu 8.04.

    but I'm not being able to do that.

    take a look below what I get when I try to remove firefox3 and install firefox2

    - after I have removed firefox 3, i run the following command

    oalexandrino@oalexandrino:/usr/bin$ sudo apt-get install firefox-2
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Package firefox-2 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 firefox-2 has no installation candidate
    oalexandrino@oalexandrino:/usr/bin$

    what's wrong?

    any idea?

    Check that you have 'universe' enabled in 'Software Sources'. then do 'sudo apt-get update' && 'sudo apt-get firefox-2'

    You have to have 3.0, then add:
    sudo aptitude install firefox-2

    Re: firefox-2 is not available for ubuntu 80.4

    Okay. The problem is you're running Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron), but your repositories are mainly for Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy Gibbon).

    So let's get you a fresh repositories list and try again.

    Let's save the old list somewhere:
    Code:
    sudo mv /etc/apt/sources.list
    and create a new list
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
    In the new text editor window, paste in
    Code:
    deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu hardy partner
    
    deb http://br.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy main universe restricted multiverse
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy-security universe main multiverse restricted
    deb http://br.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy-updates universe main multiverse restricted
    
    deb http://packages.medibuntu.org/ hardy free non-free
    then save the file and exit the text editor.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install firefox-2
