    Ubuntu Server 10.10 - How do I install Unzip?

    I am trying to set up a dedicated gaming server, but I can't seem to get the unzip software to install (hopefully not an omen).

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install unzip
    E: Package 'unzip' has no installation candidate
    I have scoured Google for an answer to this, but nothing seems to work.

    Did something change between 9.10 and 10.10? Or are things done very differently between the Server and Desktop versions of Ubuntu?

    If I've skipped something, please let me know.

    Have you
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    since you installed?

    I would have thought `unzip` would be included in all *buntu variants out-of-the-box.

    not sure what repositories are included in the server edition, but my guess is you don;t have some of the more "restricted" ones.
    what is the output of
    Code:
    cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    here is mine:
    Code:
    orenji:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list

    Hrm. I was able to install that program on 10.04 and 10.10.

    What does this return:

    Code:
    apt-cache search unzip
    The repos are the same between server and desktop versions as far as I know.
