Unable to locate package inotify-tools

Postby ColinDexter » 2017-09-14 08:57

I try to install inotify-tools on Debina 8 by:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install inotify-tools

But on sudo apt-get install inotify-tools I get the following error:

Reading package lists... Done

$ apt-cache policy inotify-tools

Sorry typo, of course I mean Debian ;-)

Yes, I saw that. That’s why I found it very strange I have this message. The question is what can I do.....

1) Are you connected to the Internet?

2) What does your sources list say? Copy and Paste here.

Have you gone further than update?

Have you done?
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade


Then tried again?

Illegal instruction means CPU is unable to execute the code. Are you using wrong distribution for your hardware? Note, there is more than one for ARM. How comes you have amd64 and suddenly there is ARM? :?
I smell FrankenDebian.

If you use the link above, you will see that Jessie does not have an ARM package.

Arm64 is not a common platform among users here. Are you sure that's what you have, and not amd64? What are you running Debian on?
The MX Linux repositories: Backports galore! If we don't have something, just ask and we'll try--we like challenges. New packages: AzPainter 2.1.0, Pale Moon 27.4.2, Liquorix kernel 4.12-6, mpv 0.26.0, Kodi 17.3, 0ad 0.0.22, Mesa 13.0.6

aarch64 GNU/Linux

Sorry guys. I need a pair of glasses. I really mean that I have seen that Jessie had the arm version :-(

I have found the manually install. Thanks all for the help.
