Package cmake 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 ‘cmake’ has no installation candidate


update your apt cache:

"sudo apt-get update"

sudo apt-get install cmake

if it still doesn't work, then 'you' changed something...


The more I learn the more I realize how little I know. Robert, thanks for coming through on this. Problem solved.
