I bought an Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, and I cannot, in anyway, install the Pi Store or Chromium. I have only been able to somehow install the Google App, which wasn't what I was exactly looking for. I've tried:

sudo apt-get install pistore
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install pistore
sudo apt-get install chromium
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install chromium

Every time, it says:

E: Unable to locate package pistore 


E: Package 'chromium' has no installation candidate

How do I install these packages?


You don't have a download problem - except that what you are trying to download doesn't exist.

Pistore is defunct https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=83&t=130379

What exactly are you trying to install? There is (or was) a chromium-browser and Chromium OS for which you need to download an image (I have never used either).

sudo apt search chromium will show any candidates.

  • +1, but apt search doesn't require sudo permissions. Best practice would be to avoid it when it's not necessary. – Jacobm001 Apr 22 '16 at 17:25

You can install Chromium 49 with Chromium Store if you follow this guide: https://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=121195 .

  • Tthere is no package for chroium browser in Jessie which is what the OP will be running on a Pi3 – Steve Robillard Apr 22 '16 at 14:04
  • Ok. My fault. I just checked that there isn't chromium in repository – Huczu Apr 22 '16 at 15:29

Use sudo apt-get install update first. Then, retry the commands you listed.
