Unable to locate package ubuntu-restricted-extras?
Make sure that all Ubuntu repositories are enabled.

Open a terminal and execute :

sudo add-apt-repository main  sudo add-apt-repository universe  sudo add-apt-repository multiverse  sudo add-apt-repository restricted  

Now install the packages :

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

Note :

Maybe the ttf-mscorefonts-installer lets the installation process hang, because the license agreement is hidden in the background. So make sure to accept the Microsoft license agreement.


Go to software sources and enable restricted and multiverse repositories, then update and install ubuntu-restricted-extras package

Hope if helps
