I was trying to execute nano, but I got the issue of -bash: nano: command not found in my Linux OS (Ubuntu).
codie@linux:~$ nano -bash: nano: command not found
I tried to install it with
sudo apt install nano, and got this issue of unable to locate package nano
codie@linux:~$ sudo apt install nano Reading package lists… Done Building dependency tree Reading state information… Done E: Unable to locate package nano
So, how to fix the issue to
unable to locate package nano or
nano: command not found
