I am trying to read HFS+ files on Apple SSD that appears to have a broken? partition using Ubuntu 18.04.1 live usb. I performed the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hfsprogs

I get the following output:

ubuntu@ubuntu:/$ sudo apt-get install hfsprogs Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package hfsprogs

How do I get around this?

When I attempt to use command fsck.hfsplus, the command is not found.

When I tried fsck.hfs, it says not found, but can be installed with sudo apt install hfsprogs... which yields the same output above.
