    Hi.

    I have a laptop where I have installed Xubuntu 16.04 x64. As far I can see, all updates is ok, but I get error messages when trying to call apt install for the deb file.

    Output from Terminal

    sprinterdriver@dellcomputer:~/Downloads$ sudo apt install cherrytree_0.38.1-1_all.deb
    [sudo] password for sprinterdriver: 
    Reading package lists... Done

    E: Unable to locate package cherrytree_0.38.1-1_all.deb
    E: Couldn't find any package by glob 'cherrytree_0.38.1-1_all.deb'
    E: Couldn't find any package by regex 'cherrytree_0.38.1-1_all.deb'
    sprinterdriver@dellcomputer:~/Downloads$ 

    I’m too noob using Linux to know what is wrong here. What can I do to overcome this problem and get the latest cherrytree version being installed on this computer?

    Thanks

    You are in your Downloads folder, but the package has not been stored on this place. Did you download it? Where did you store it? Do you see it, if you enter in the same folder: ls?

    Yes, I see the file when I browse the download folder with file explorer. It is present.

    The ls command also print the file name, so the deb file is present for sure.

    I don’t know,if there is gdebi present in Xubuntu. What happens, if you double click the deb file in the file manager?

    I get an error too when clicking the deb file from file manager that is similar, but in a window instead of terminal.
