      Make sure you have enabled Ubuntu repositories:

      To enable all repositories (main, universe, restricted, multiverse), use the following commands:

      sudo add-apt-repository main
      sudo add-apt-repository universe
      sudo add-apt-repository restricted
      sudo add-apt-repository multiverse
