E: Unable to locate package python-pip
I keep hitting this annoying error, here's a post on how to fix it. No doubt I'll be returning here.
Often, when you start a new (blank) instance on EC2, you have to install stuff like awscli or python-pip. Sometimes it can't find the package and you get this error.
sudo apt-get install python-pip Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package python-pip
This is becuase it is not looking in the right repository. Python-pip is in the universe repository, so you have to add it.
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common sudo apt-add-repository universe sudo apt-get update
Then you can install your packages i.e.
sudo apt-get install python-pip sudo apt-get install awscli
