[Solved]openssh-server installation problem after removed from the server – Debian

Yesterday, I got an error while trying to install the openssh-server after I removed it from one Debian server. I had tried with the “apt-get” command, and the error is below:

Command:

apt-get install openssh-server

Error:

[email protected]:/# apt-get install openssh-server
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package openssh-server 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 'openssh-server' has no installation candidate

I had searched a lot, and finally fixed it simply by upgrading the “apt-get”. If you are in the same location, you can use the below command to came out from there.

Solution:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install openssh-server

That’s it 🙂 🙂
