Not able to install Nautilus

Postby rmariappan » 2017-08-01 23:06

Hi all,

I have recently installed debian stretch on my desktop.
psk@n0thing:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.1 (stretch)
Release: 9.1
Codename: stretch


I am using budgie as the desktop environment. When I tried to install nautilus, I am getting the following error.
Can someone please help me to fix this issue?
Thanks in advance

psk@n0thing:~$ sudo apt install nautilus

This error catches my eye since Debian 9 does not present that issue just because, did you do an apt-pin, add a ppa or another foreign installation method that was outside the Debian repos? may we take a look at your sources.list? is there anything at sources.list.d? :mrgreen:

Had you done any "apt-get update" beforehand to build your package database?

What happens if you try installing nautilus now?
