    Re: E:Unable to Locate Package

    Hi

    I have simmilar problem. At the beginning I will put some light on my case. I'm trying to do LiveCD of my system. To do this I'm using program called Ubuntu Customization Kit(UCK). During this program i chose option to add programs manually using console or software center. I chose console and i write in apt-get install name_of_package. I'm trying to install Meep. But I get this message: E: Unable to locate package meep

    This works when I'm doing it on my system, but on console connected to UCK gives me this error. Any ideas why. This also worked few weeks ago on UCK but now it doesn't.

    I've tried apt-get update but it didn't help. I think that it is worth metioning that I was able to install for eg. aptitude package.

    Any answer which put some light on this case is welcom.

    Best regards

    I can see this thread is going to get really confusing. I have already lost count of how many individual problems we are supposed to be solving in this one thread.
    Break it, fix it, learn something.

    Hi

    Solution of this matter was quite simple. Man need to copy /etc/apt/sources.list file from host system to newly created one, which is localized at ~/tmp/remaster-root/etc/apt/surces.list. After that you need to update repository list (apt-get update). That should solve problem with apt-get install on UCK

    Host system and new one were created from same .iso disc. I don't know why, but consistency of this two files is different.
