        I'm first time using LINUX . 
        I'm trying to download "git" using terminal,
          but the error comes like  "    E:
              Unable to locate package git   "
        My objective is to run QEMU. But i'm stuck in this
        Also when i tried to run "software updater", its gives a fault like "  failed to
              download repository information ".
        But my browser works fine (that's how i'm mailing you).
        I do not how to face it.



    Hi. Your probleme looks like  you have
      not downloaded updates yet.

      So type sudo apt-get update (1)

      and after that: sudo apt-get dist-upgrade (2)

      it weel enable all your source packages in /etc/apt/source.list

      From this moment you will be able to download all you want and
      even "git" :)
