Hi;
I'm trying to install packages (sudo apt-get ...etc); am asked to login but cannot enter password; It won't let me type anything. I expect it's something pretty basic and I know very little about command line.... howver!

The terminal won't let you see the password you are typing. You just have to type and press Enter. If that's what you are asking.

you don`t see your password.

Just hit enter after you`ve typed it.
