I am having problems getting the dkim-filter package to install


Tried this several times, using the ubuntu documentation

 on fresh 8.04 server install


My searches have not yielded anything helpful so I'm posting here.


Keep getting the following error after running the installation:


sudo apt-get install dkim-filter


The following NEW packages will be installed:


0 upgraded, 1 newly installed, 0 to remove and 9 not upgraded.
