Question Terminal says

Package git is not available, but it is referred to by another package.This may mean package is missing,has been obsoleted,or is only available from another source.
E:Package git has no installation candidate

Ubuntu 10.04 is from the time when the package name 'git-core' was used for git.


Please try : sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install git-core
