Impossible to install deluge via apt

Postby Derek » Tue Nov 17, 2020 3:58 pm

Hi,

I am working with Deluge and I am building a project on it. Yesterday I was surprised with news that I can't install deluge with apt. So, I typed

Code: Select all

sudo apt update -qq; sudo apt install deluge deluged deluged-web deluged-console -yqq

And there was a list of errors:

Code: Select all

Package deluge 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

E: Package 'deluge' has no installation candidate
E: Package 'deluged' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package deluged-web
E: Unable to locate package deluged-console


Any ideas? I'm running on ParrotOS and for last 3 months there were no errors with installing deluge packages. I googled my problem and I learned that I need to add another repo for this packages. But where to find the right repo?

My /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.parrot are empty. Here is /etc/apt/sources.list.d/parrot.list as in official F.A.Q of ParrotOS

Code: Select all

deb https://deb.parrot.sh/parrot/ rolling main contrib non-free
#deb-src https://deb.parrot.sh/parrot/ rolling main contrib non-free
deb https://deb.parrot.sh/parrot/ rolling-security main contrib non-free
#deb-src https://deb.parrot.sh/parrot/ rolling-security main contrib non-free

Hi,

I don't use this OS but it's based on Debian it seems. On my Debian I use the Ubuntu PPA matching my Debian version to install Deluge, never done it from the Debian Repo. See https://launchpad.net/~deluge-team/+arc ... ntu/stable for the address to use
