Upps. I simply forgot to “apt-get update” before attempting to install missing package.

Good evening !

I’m sorry to unearth an issue that seem fixed, but I have exactly the same issue on a Ubuntu 18.04, but the “sudo apt-get update” solution didn’t work for me. Could you help me troubleshoot ?

Thanks in advance !
