Installing skype+deluge


Hello

I have just installed Linx Mint 16 and now I am trying to install skype and deluge. This is what I am doing for skype.

sudo aptitude install skype

and this what i get

0 packages upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 17,0 MB of archives. After unpacking 39,4 MB will be used.
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
skype-bin:i386 : Depends: libasound2:i386 (>= 1.0.23) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libc6:i386 (>= 2.7) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libgcc1:i386 (>= 1:4.1.1) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libqt4-dbus:i386 (>= 4:4.5.3) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libqt4-network:i386 (>= 4:4.8.0) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libqt4-xml:i386 (>= 4:4.5.3) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libqtcore4:i386 (>= 4:4.7.0~beta1) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libqtgui4:i386 (>= 4:4.8.0) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libqtwebkit4:i386 (>= 2.2~2011week36) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libstdc++6:i386 (>= 4.6) which is a virtual package.
Depends: libx11-6:i386 which is a virtual package.
Depends: libxext6:i386 which is a virtual package.
Depends: libxss1:i386 which is a virtual package.
Depends: libxv1:i386 which is a virtual package.
Depends: libssl1.0.0:i386 which is a virtual package.
Depends: libgl1-mesa-glx:i386 which is a virtual package.
The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) skype [Not Installed]
2) skype-bin:i386 [Not Installed]



Accept this solution? [Y/n/q/?] q


and for deluge (same action as for skype I do ) I get

Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "deluge"
Couldn't find any package whose name or description matched "deluge"
No packages will be installed, upgraded, or removed.
0 packages upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 0 B of archives. After unpacking 0 B will be used.


Tried to download qbittorrent and ktorrent instead but I got the same result as deluge.


Any ideas?

A couple of comments.

Out of interest, why have you installed Linux Mint 16, an old version? Is it due to hardware constraints?

I recommend you use apt-get, not aptitude. The Software Manager is also very useful for installing software.

I thought I should add more details:

For apt-get, before you install, you should always do:

Code:
sudo apt-get update
Code:
sudo apt-get upgrade
Then you do:

Code:
sudo apt-get install deluge
(for example)

There is more info on apt-get on the internet and in man apt-get.

yeah after you install any Linux do the update, upgrade first before installing anything else on it.

Indeed, but you should also do an update, upgrade before installing any software at any point (or before a sequence of installs that you're doing one after each other).

The update ensures that you have the latest information from the repositories on what's available and how everything interconnects.

The upgrade ensures that you have a nice up-to-date system waiting to welcome the new installed applications.
