I am trying to install some s/w using apt-get. No matter which package i try, it cannot seem to locate. Here’s an example:

bruceg@vr-1:~$ sudo su
vbash-4.1# apt-get install sshpass
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
E: Unable to locate package sshpass

Any ideas?


You may have to add in the debian squeeze repositories to get packages you are used to. I think the maintainers are trying to upgrade VyOS to a newer debian, but until then it’s based on debian 6.


I tried that but may not be getting the correct repositories. I’m more of a router guy than a linux guy :slight_smile:
