It is not finding these packages. Does anybody know why?

It is not finding the installation candidate. Here is the result of sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 php5:

pi@raspberrypi3:~ $ sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php5 -y
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package libapache2-mod-php5 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 'libapache2-mod-php5' has no installation candidate

Thank you.


PHP 5 is no longer supported.

You could use PHP 7 instead:

sudo apt install libapache2-mod-php7.3
