All repositorys?, but "no installation candidate found!"

Help with issues regarding installation of Debian

All repositorys?, but "no installation candidate found!"

Postby antonius » 2017-08-23 17:58

Running debian 9 without DE!
Commands to install tools like inxi, aptitude, etc. are ending with messages:
Code: Select all
"no installation candidate found!" ...

The /etc/apt/sources.list has following inserted correctly.

Code: Select all
deb  http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main
deb-src  http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch main

deb  http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-updates main
deb-src  http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-updates main

deb http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ stretch/updates main

cdrom drive is # commented out.
I'm unexperienced, like a three year old that has figured out tricycles have a seat to sit upon.
Please help. Why doesn't it install?

Did you run :
Code: Select all
apt upate

or
Code: Select all
apt-get update

After you modified the sources.list file and commented out the:
cdrom drive is # commented out.

'update' must be run in order for the changes to take effect.

Before doing anything, read the Debian documentation:

As Garry indicated, the first thing you want to run is:

Code: Select all
apt update && apt upgrade


Then try installing whatever software you like.

Hello GarryRicketson, thank you for helping me tonight!
I did # apt-get update as you said.
It had several ERRORS with the sources.list, I'l try to type the errors here for you, since ssh is not possible for me now. One moment please.

OK, after apt-get update && upgrade, it still can't install tools.
Here's a short snipit from the errors:
Code: Select all

I couldn't write down everything, it's too much. I'm sorry.

ssh doesn't work here for copying it.
Do I have to meticulously write it down? All or a specific line of your interest please sir?

Code: Select all

Post the results of:

Code: Select all
cat /etc/apt/sources.list

here with code tags.

EDIT: See the wiki page for sources.list

Just type "Debian sources.list" wiki in google or whatever.

OK, T H A N K Y O U
Do you want me to downgrade to a different version of debian Sir or Madam?
if you wish/recommend me to do so, then druing install. should I uncheck in the older version install that is supported? the automatic upgrades to stretch during the installation queries?
And avoid this distro stretch as beginner?

We need to see your sources.list before we can proceed.

Did you change the sources.list file to get rid of that "archive" address?

If you are still getting that error with "apt update", we have to determine exactly how it's getting in there. A possible culprit might be additional .list files in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

Try

Code: Select all
apt update

then try installing something, like

Code: Select all
apt install inxi


to see if it's fixed.

By the way, are the previous sources lists for wheezy and jessie or whatever they're called compatible here in sources.list with debian stretch, or do i need to downgrade? I just want sth that works, i don't know what you mean with "archive", maybe offline? - serious question, I'm about to be done with stretch.
