    E: Package not found <pgkname>

    It appears that whenever I try to install any package, I recieve the error E: Package not found <pgkname>

    Currently I am trying to install flash, so I type in :

    sudo apt-get install flashplugin-nonfree

    I've tried other versions that I've found online besides flashplugin-nonfree, with the same results. I suspect this has something to do with sources.list

    I should mention that I have been having this problem for a little while, and (stupidly) copied the sources.list from my other computer (Ubuntu x64) without remembering that the computer I did the target computer was actually not Ubuntu but rather Lubuntu for PowerPC. I seem to recall that sources.list only had one line in it before I overwrote it, but unfortunately I didn't save a copy (sorry!).

    Here is the output from sudo apt-get update:

    Code:

    Weird. apt is trying to get updates for powerpc architecture, but the comments in sources.list say both amd64 and i386. What kind of machine is this?

    What does dpkg --print-architecture show?

    AFAIK, for powerpc your sources.list should point to ports.ubuntu.com

    Re: E: Package not found <pgkname>

    you'd better re-generate your source list.
    repogen.simplylinux.ch/
    Dont miss anything even it is small. one small pin is enough to bring down a man.

    Re: E: Package not found <pgkname>

    Schragge brings up some good points.
    If I were you, I would use the Sources List Generator to make a new sources.list.
    But first you must specify what architecture you have. Are you using this on an old PPC Mac?
    FYI, for Ubuntu you want to run

    Code:
    apt-get install flashplugin-installer
    rather than flashplugin-nonfree. That's a Debian package.

    Thanks for all the suggestion... before I try them and make some (another ) horrible mistake, I will follow Cortman's advice.

    Yes, I am on a PPC Mac (iBook G4).

    lsb_release produces the output:
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    Release: 12.04
    Codename: precise

    It's LUBUNTU and I installed it just yesterday (downloaded yesterday, too).

    I don't know if it's relevant, but when I installed it, when it was at the installing software step (I used the special install disc) it failed twice so I just skipped it. When I got it up and running, there was no GUI, so I had to install that manually from the disc.

    Re: E: Package not found <pgkname>

    Well, your sources.list is completely wrong then.
    As a starting point, replace it with
    Code:
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise main restricted
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise main restricted
    
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-updates main restricted
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-updates main restricted
    
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise universe
    deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ precise universe
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-updates universe
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-updates universe
    
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise multiverse
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise multiverse
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-updates multiverse
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-updates multiverse
    
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-backports main restricted universe multiverse
    
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-security main restricted
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-security main restricted
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ precise-security universe
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-security universe
    deb http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-security multiverse
    deb-src http://ports.ubuntu.com/ precise-security multiverse
    and try to sudo apt-get update again. Then you can generate new sources.list as suggested above, or extend this gradually, checking each time after adding a new repository if it still works.

    Yes, I am on a PPC Mac (iBook G4).

    lsb_release produces the output:
    No LSB modules are available.
    Distributor ID: Ubuntu
    Description: Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    Release: 12.04
    Codename: precise

    Create a new sources.list file using the link I gave, and then run

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    dpkg sets the architecture at the installation, so you should be fine after that. Either delete the old sources.list, or else rename it sources.list.old (although as messed up as it is I'd just delete it).
    Good luck!

    Re: E: Package not found <pgkname>

    I found the original sources.list stored in sources.list.save

    It 'helped', as I no longer get E: Package not found, but now I get this output:

    Code:
    william@ubuntuGSALIB5:~/Documents$ sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    Package flashplugin-installer 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 'flashplugin-installer' has no installation candidate
    And, here is the contents of the new sources.list I found

    E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    And now I don't have the problem with EVERY package I try to install like I did before, as I just was finally able to install JAVA.

    Hm, try changing the repository mirror? Per instructions here, second answer.
    As soon as that updates fine you should be able to install flash.

    @billiam2296
    You're still don't getting any updates. As I said before, us.archive.ubuntu.com is wrong, it doesn't host packages for PowerPC. Instead, try with ports.ubuntu.com from the example in my previous post.

    Update.
    Sorry, I didn't noticed ports.ubuntu.com line in your new sources.list. So, you're getting some updates, but not all of them. I'd still suggest you replace this source.list with the one from my post above.
