As a user, I do not see a problem with this suggestion, as long as the
instructions are included. Is there a way to include the instructions in
command-not-found? Perhaps that is just wishful thinking at this time,
but there are so many new users having issues with repositories not
enabled now, just have to ask.

Thanks for asking. 

good luck,
