I try to install jetty on a new Raspberry Pi 3 with Raspbian.

sudo apt-get install jetty

But i only get the following message:

Package jetty 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 'jetty' has no installation candidate

How to install jetty?

(i tried update, upgrade, dist-upgrade and installed oracle-java7-jdk)

1 Answer 1

  1. apt-cache search jetty (to find the package_name)
  2. apt-get install package_name
  • That was a quick one. Worked! I'm not used to linux/debian systems.
