E: Package 'aptitude' has no installation candidate

E: Package 'aptitude' has no installation candidate

Sometimes, we are getting broken package error. Please can easily solve this problem.

Example:- 

      sudo apt-get install aptitude

If you got error like- 
     
      E: Package 'aptitude' has no installation candidate

Solution:-
   
      sudo apt-get update

      sudo apt-get install build-essential


      sudo dpkg --configure -a


      sudo apt-get -f install
None of those worked in my case. I then went to Ubuntu Software Center>Edit> Software Sources and made these changes.




After that the following commands did the job

      sudo apt-get update
 

      sudo apt-get install build-essential
 

      sudo apt-get install aptitude

Now, problem is solved.
