I have added sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases and then 
did ---
sudo apt-get install handbrake
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package handbrake 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 'handbrake' has no installation candidate

Any ideas?
