Error - E: Unable to locate package xfce4

Hi All,

Greetings for the day 🙂 LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL 🙂

Today new issue and solution 🙂

Background :

I was preparing demo for my Docker / Containers session. For this purpose in my Azure trial I have created UBUNTU / Linux box. I need to connect my Ubuntu box using RDP. To connect Ubuntu box using RDP we need to perform several steps, we have detailed article here – Connecting Linux VM hosted in Azure from Windows 10 using RDP

One of the step is install xfce4 – Desktop Virtual Environment. We need to install xfce4 using SSH with following command as

sudo apt-get -y install xfce4

While executing above command we were getting an error

Error :

Detailed error :

fig : Error – E: Unable to locate package xfce4

Solution :

We need to enable universe repository, need to execute following commands

sudo add-apt-repository universe
