However if you try it now…
sudo apt-get install command-not-found
Package is installed. According to docs you need to generate its database:
It however finishes under half a second with return code 0, which is suspicious and strange. I've used it before in a full PC and it takes at least 20 seconds.
Then, no matter how many times I try to
update-command-not-found, or restart my bash session, the database is never there.
$ aoeuaoeuaoeu Could not find the database of available applications, run update-command-not-found as root to fix this aoeuaoeuaoeu: command not found
man update-command-not-found, it references the file/folder (I dunno)
/var/cache/apt/apt-file, which doesn't seem to be there at all. Should it? Or should
update-command-not-found look elsewhere?
