When running PureOS, I first found that, when I try to run an unknown command, instead of listing potential packages from the package sources, I get this:
Could not find the database of available applications, run update-command-not-found as root to fix this
When I run that command, however, nothing happens. Further, I notice when I run this:
apt-file find intltoolize
(Where “intltoolize” is a file I don’t have installed), I get this:
E: The cache is empty. You need to run “apt update” first
When I run
sudo apt update, I get the following output:
Hit:1 http://repo.puri.sm/pureos green InRelease
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
All packages are up to date.
However, this doesn’t seem to make a difference - my apt cache remains empty. Do I need to add a different/additional source? What am I missing?
