I have been trying to install deluge on my rpi. The internet connection is good but when I try sudo apt install deluge it does not find the package. Any ideas? I feel like the repo isn't available. I tried the deb file from the deluge website and that has not worked either. Using Raspbian 9 Stretch.

I believe the package is called deluge-common.

You can install it with the following command:

sudo apt-get install deluge-common

You can search the repository for a package with the following command:

sudo apt-cache search deluge

This will return all packages with deluge in the name or description.

  • That worked, I had to run 'apt update' for apt to see the deluge-common package. Once I installed that I searched for deluge again and it was there! Thank you very much!
