    Hello everyone,
    I am trying to install Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (Ubuntu 7.10) and have ran into a snag. I am at step #6 and have run into a problem.

    http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect_server_ubuntu7.10

    I type in:
    "apt-get install vim-full"

    and I get this:
    Reading package lists.... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information.. Done
    Package vim-full isn't 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 vim-full has no installation candidate


    Any ideas?

    What's in /etc/apt/sources.list?

    I logged in and typed in /ect/apt/source.list and also tried ect/apt/source.list and got this both times:

    -bash: ect/apt/sources.list:no such file or directory


    Can you tell me what steps I would need to do to what I would like to do?
    -fileserver
    -ftp
    -vpn
    -printer server
    -web hosting


    I am also thinking about a STRONG firewall, but am not sure about that quite yet, more worried about the Ubuntu Server install, of course :).

    It's /etc not /ect
    sources.list is a file.You can view it by entering:
    Code:
    more /etc/apt/sources.list
    There are lots of good howtos here.I'm sure You will find something appropriate.

    Well, unless sudo need to be before this, it gives the same message:

    etc/apt/source.list: No such file or directory.

    This is for:

    more /etc/apt/sources.list
    &
    /ect/apt/source.list

    ???

    :)

    You can see the contents of that file without sudo, but changing something requires You to have appropriate access permissions:
    Code:
     more /etc/apt/sources.list
    in my case it contains:
    Code:

    I see that you can view your source list, but I can't, at least by code:
    more /etc/apt/source.list

    I am very new to this, and know only what the tutorial and what I am told (n00b).

    What now?

    It's
    Code:
    more /etc/apt/source[B][COLOR="Red"]s[/COLOR][/B].list

    There we go! Yea I see most of that, but I can't see all that on mine (don't want to mess this up) :) It has most of that and then it shows:

    --More--34%

    Sure looks like it, right down to the "release" # (20071016)

    Alright, what is the next thing to do/try? :D

    Ok now that I know this info, what should I do about installing VIM-full?

    falko Super Moderator ISPConfig Developer

    Please run
    Code:
    apt-get update
    and then
    Code:
    apt-get install vim-full

    The update only makes it to 27% and no updates are installed.

    Is there a way of downloading the needed updates and manually installing them?

    What do you mean with that? Is your Internet connection maybe unstable? Have you tried a second time?

    Typing:

    Please edit /etc/resolv.conf and try
    Code:
    nameserver 145.253.2.75
    nameserver 62.109.123.7
    instead.
