Hi, when I try to use the dig command I get this error:

dig: command not found

I tried to install it with:

apt update
apt install dig

But it says that the package was not found.

I’m not sure what I’m missing, any help will be appreciated.

Hello,

Yes, you need to install another package which contains the dig command called dnsutils.

To do that just run:

apt update
apt install dnsutils

Hope that this helps!
