Ubuntu: E: Unable to locate Ubuntu-restricted-extras [duplicate]


I have tried re-installing restricted extras but still cannot locate the file. Now, when I run

sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras  

I am getting this message

E: Unable to locate package ubuntu-restricted-extras  

I've tried using sudo killall update-manager the response is "No process found".

I used janitor to clean my machine yesterday, Could this be the issue here as janitor might have cleaned all my packages?


Go to Ubuntu Software Center -> edit -> software sources Check this:

  • Main
  • universe
  • restricted
  • multiverse
  • canonical partner (optional)
  • indepedent

and open terminal and doing this:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras  

If you install ubuntu restricted extras it will automatically install flash. I hope this help and can close your case.
