[SOLVED] Help with installing Gdebi on Debian 10

Hello all

I think when I installed Debian 10 on my laptop I must have not ticked some of the boxes or something because I tried to install gdebi earlier and I got the message:

has no installation candidate

Same thing happened when I tried to install synaptic

Can anyone help?

I am wondering if I forgot to choose a mirror for my sources list.

I googled this but I do not know how to add a mirror to the list if that is the issue.

Sorry to be a pain with my newbie questions!

-edit- hhh here, marking this thread [SOLVED].

No worries. Post the output of 'sudo apt update', please use the forum "code" tag function. This will show us your sources.

Yes, you are missing sources.

Add at least:
## DEBIAN 10 Buster
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ buster main contrib non-free

You edit as root the file: /etc/apt/sources.list

Read more about Debian repos on https://wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository
