Recently I have been trying to install VNC on my raspberry pi 3 but it won't work. It may be because I used the incorrect name for the file. I have used: sudo apt-get install VNC,sudo apt-get install VNC connect, etc. How can I fix this?

You should learn to use the tools.

apt-cache search name will find all packages mentioning name.

apt-cache search vnc

Will show packages which mention VNC, and you then use apt-cache showpkg to explore e.g. apt-cache showpkg tightvncserver

There is already a VNC package installed by default, although IMO it is not the most flexible.

You will find hundreds of posts on this site tagged [vnc]
