"Squid3" is probably not the official name of the package. I'm not running Debian, so I can't test right now.

If you are running with a GUI, try opening the Synaptic package manager and using the search to find Squid.

From a terminal/command line try

apt-get update
then
apt-cache show squid3

I get good info back on my Debian Wheezy box

Also:
https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=squid3

BTW: E: ???

Hope that helps,
Tim

Hi

first using "text speak" is disliked around here

this forum is NOT a telephone sms message

Please is NOT spelled "plz"


as to squid

have you read the instructions for using "apt" ?

first start with a search
-- i use "su - " on Debian 8.2
Code:
su -
apt-get update 

apt search squid 
--- one of the results is ---

squid3/stable 3.4.8-6+deb8u1 amd64
  Full featured Web Proxy cache (HTTP proxy) 

----- then from the list install it ------

apt-get install squid3 squid3-common

However:
Code:

Works!
