Install netcat on BeagleBoneBlack


I am trying to install netcat on BeagleBone Black. I am not able to find the package though(through apt). Did anyone use netcat on BeagleBone? Could someone help me with this?

Thanks in advance,

Sai Kiran.

Did you do an update first?

sudo apt update 
sudo apt install netcat

To find packages

$apt-cache search <name>
$apt-cache search netcat

Thanks. apt update did the work. But it took quite some time, for apt update. Apparently, the previous time I did the update, due to the network issue, it could not fetch the data properly. Now, it works fine.
