sudo aptitude update command not found


trying to get wine working was reading the tutorial-

"Complete Guide to Using Wine from the Command Line (Ubuntu)" first thing it said to do for ubuntu user's was this-

"Before I continue with my rant about gaming on Linux I would like to point out right now that the very first thing you should do when you install your ubuntu set up is to run the following:

Code:
user@ubuntu$ sudo aptitude update
user@ubuntu$ sudo aptitude install ubuntu-restricted-extras

but when i try and run in the terminal i get "command not found".

using ubuntu 11.4 natty kernel linux 2.6.38-8 generic gnome 2.32.1

Use sudo apt-get update

or

sudo apt-get install package_name

or

sudo apt-get upgrade

Above commands depends upon the situation as to what you want to get/installed/upgrade etc.

Apparently Aptitude is no longer included with Ubuntu's default install as of 10.10 Maverick Meerkat. Ubuntu-ers seem to prefer apt-get anyway.

The tutorial definitely needs updating.

aptitude is no longer installed on Ubuntu. apt-get update will take care of things for you.
