I am trying to install package bittwist on debian 7.4. Im linux newbie.

Synaptic does not display this package. In sources.list i have line with us repository: deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy main and i've run apt-get update

When i try to apt-get install bittwist it returns package not found. But i see bittwist in repository: http://http.us.debian.org/debian/pool/main/b/bittwist/

What im doing wrong?

The bittwist package is not in the wheezy release. You can see here that it is only in oldstable, wheezy-backports, jessie and sid.

If you want to install bittwist, add the wheezy-backports repository to your sources.list, run apt-get update, and then apt-get install bittwist will install it.

The line you should add to your sources.list is:

deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ wheezy-backports main
