  • The most likely situation is that you need to update your sources for some reason, with

    sudo apt-get update

    It's also possible that your sources aren't set up correctly. You can configure them in the update manager. They are located in the file /etc/apt/sources.list - if you continue to have problems paste the source of that file here.
