I am trying to install a few applications like tftpd-hpa, samba, and apache2 however i can't seem to do this. I've tried looking around on google for answers to no avail. I have had some luck installing dnsmasq and ssh and I'm using those fine. But when I try install other applications I get a bunch of error messages.
Package samba 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 'samba' has no installation candidate
Apache2 seems to have a slightly different issue:
The following packages have unmet dependencies: apache2 : Depends: apache2-bin (= 2.4.10-10+deb8u1) but it is not going to be installed Depends: apache2-utils (>= 2.4) but it is not going to be installed Recommends: ssl-cert but it is not installable E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
When installing tftpd-hpa
E: Unable to locate package tftpd-hpa
I have attempted to change my mirror in
/etc/apt/sources.list and using apt-get afterwards. This didn't work. I am in NZ so I am using "ftp.nz.debian.org/debian" as the source. And in addition I installed it from a CD and when I installed dnsmasq and ssh they asked me to put the cd back in. So I don't know if this is the issue.
So I think it has to do with my
http://ftp.nz.debian.org mirror. I have changed my mirror to Australia which is just a few hours away and manage to get all the packages. I have also tried using all the other nz mirrors to no avail. Guess my island is just dead.
