makeinfo install


Hi,
I am trying to install some packages in Ubuntu 14.04 .But it says unable to locate the package.
I tried " sudo apt-get update " and then "sudo apt-get install makeinfo"

Result:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package makeinfo

I tried the following also

sudo apt-get install texinfo

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
libperl5.18 : Depends: perl-base (= 5.18.2-2ubuntu1) but 5.18.2-2ubuntu1.6 is to be installed
libxml-libxml-perl : Depends: libxml-namespacesupport-perl but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libxml-sax-perl but it is not going to be installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


please help me with this. (version: 3.13.0-24-generic #46-Ubuntu SMP)

so do what was suggested: apt-get -f install
also try ubuntu package search to find that package (makeinfo)

You should also check that your software sources are correct:

Code:
inxi -r

Thank you for your replies.

When I tried apt-get -f install the result is,

E: Could not open lock file /var/lib/dpkg/lock - open (13: Permission denied)
E: Unable to lock the administration directory (/var/lib/dpkg/), are you root?
