whois command not working


I’m trying to run whois (whois and I’m getting the following message:

No command ‘whois’ found, did you mean: Command ‘rwhois’ from package ‘socks4-clients’ (universe) Command ‘jwhois’ from package ‘jwhois’ (universe) Command ‘cwhois’ from package ‘asused’ (universe) Command ‘gwhois’ from package ‘gwhois’ (universe) whois: command not found

I’m sure it worked before.

I’m setup using LEMP on Ubuntu 12.04.3 x64

Thank you.
