I have just launched my first EC2 instance and chose an Ubuntu image to start from, since it's quite well documented.
However, I am trying to install the Redis package: http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/redis-server
Maybe I am not googling properly or just stupid since the weekend is approaching, but I'll keep getting errors:
root@ip-10-229-123-199:~# sudo apt-get install redis-server Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done E: Couldn't find package redis-server
I'll assume that I need to add a repository or something to Ubuntu to help it find the package I want, but how do I do it? I can only find graphical guides which doesn't help me too much since I am using SSH.
Edit: After some help from Bart (many thanks to you!), this occurs instead:
root@ip-10-229-123-199:~# sudo apt-get install redis-server Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done Package redis-server is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package redis-server has no installation candidate
