Perfect Install - Ubuntu 6.06 - unable to locate packages
 
Is anyone else running into this. The files that apt-get have been unable to find so far are
ncftp
php5-imap
php5-mcrypt
php5-pspell
proftpd

I’m sure that like the ncftp is I open a web browser and manually search archive.ubuntu.com I can find them, but I can’t get apt-get to install them


SOLVED I ran apt-get update then apt-upgrade then the proftpd package was available.
Don't know what that does, but it worked for proftpd

apt-get update updates your local database of available packages. You must run this whenever you change /etc/apt/sources.list so that the system knows what packages are available.

I tried "apt-get update" as you suggested above, but when I went back and tried:
apt-get install php5-imap php5-mcrypt php5-pspell
I still received the "Couldn't find package" error listed in Step 13 of the perfect install.
Any suggestions? I don't want to continue since I'm such a noob, I'm afriad I'll mess something up!
Thanks!

You have to uncomment the multiverse and universe repositorys in your /etc/apt/sources.list and then run apt-get update again.

Thank you Till! That fixed the problem with one server that I'm operating. I'm going to search the forums before I post the question about the second! :D
