Unhappy Trying to get Tor on LuninuxOS


So I've recently put Luninux as my OS, and I'm trying to download Tor browser. This works, but I can't run it, and trying to get Tor from terminal is very confusing. I get this:

apt-get install tor
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
W: Duplicate sources.list entry http://deb.opera.com/opera/ stable/non-free i386 Packages (/var/lib/apt/lists/deb.opera.com_opera_dists_stable_non-free_binary-i386_Packages)
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
E: Unable to locate package tor

I run apt-get update and then try again and it says to try update again so I assume the update command did nothing. What do I do?

Firstly you should do this using the sudo command:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
And then you can try the install again:
Code:
sudo apt-get install tor

use the TOR BUNDLE!!!!!
https://www.torproject.org/download/...d-easy.html.en

if you use a NORMAL install of say firefox

the installed TRACKING cookies WILL GIVE YOU AWAY!!!

I ran sudo apt-get update before doing this? But I saw a lot of "failed to fetch..." and "404 not found" so I guess it didn't go well.

installing tor is not enough to use the tor browser.

like was said before, you need this package.
and be sure to also read this.
