Where's the MAN pages?


I've just installed Debian on the BeagleBone Black. There don't seem to be the manual pages. How can I get them please?

Welcome to LQ.

Install them. Open a terminal and issue
Code:
sudo apt-get install man-db
And/or https://manpages.debian.org/

As noted, since man-pages are somewhat large, they are optional.

I guessed that by the platform, that Documentation may have been omitted.

The system should still install a man page for each installed application that has one.
