Question Problems setting up vsFTPd with virtual users. Need Assistance.

Running mint 17.1 (64 bit) Cinnamon

I've spent a bunch of time trying to troubleshoot my setup of my ftp. Currently trying to get it to work using the virtual users option. I am following this guide I've hit a snag that I can't seem to get around. The libdb3-util is where I'm having trouble. When I input the code "sudo apt-get install libdb3-util" my results are as follows:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package libdb3-util
I have searched around a little, found someone else that had a similar problem, and was able to use db4.7-util to correct their problem. However, when I attempted this, it was unsuccessful. Is there a newer libdb/db I should be installing? If so, when I install it will it alter any of the code I've used from the guide?

I've been following the guide verbatum from the start of "Virtual users with TLS/SSL/FTPS and a common upload directory - Complicated vsftpd" and have stalled at the point of installing the libdb3-util.

Mint is derived from Debian, assuming you can use the debian packaging system (apt?) you can probably use this page... since the maintainer, who keeps...this page seems to be saying that the utilities are now built into the db3 package.

It's worth a shot... though I'd check to make sure I don't already have any of those packages installed on my system already, in which case you can just continue with your project.
