but when try to install apache it is displaying the following error

Package apache2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

Open a terminal (Applications>Accessories>Terminal) and try updating first,

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install apache2
If that does not work can post your sources list

cat /etc/apt/sources.list
