Question problem installing make on ubuntu

hi guys..
tried to install make on my new ubuntu install using :sudo apt-get install make
this is wat happened:
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Package make 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
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://archive.ubuntu.com breezy/main Packa ges (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_breezy_main_binary-i386_ Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: Couldn't stat source package list http://archive.ubuntu.com breezy/restricted Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/archive.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_breezy_restricted_ binary-i386_Packages) - stat (2 No such file or directory)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Package make has no installation candidate


i guess make wasnt installed..please help !!

I would tell you to get the fedora RPM and to convert it with alien, or check(in root) to see if you already have the command.

What's in /etc/apt/sources.list? Did you run
Code:
apt-get update
before?
