Cosmic is prerelease and has only just been named. It isn't for regular users and is nowhere near ready.

Why are you using cosmic?

I suggest you wipe the install off and do a clean install of Bionic. Bionic is LTS and supported until April 2023.

If you want to help get cosmic ready for release in October then by all means use it and report bugs but don't expect a smooth ride. You may find an update causes the system to not boot and you may have to fix a lot yourself.

You can also expect missing packages and so forth. It's a pre release.... What did you expect!?

Manfred Hampl (m-hampl) said : #2

The Ubuntu release with the codename "cosmic cuttlefish" is the version currently in development to be published in half a year's time (18.10 - October 2018).

This is work in progress. The official Ubuntu repositories have already been set up, but you cannot expect that external repositories (like and also PPAs) are already set up for a future Ubuntu release which is in its infant stages, and where no decision has been taken about the features to be included in that release.

If you want to have a stable Ubuntu release with adequate support, then I strongly recommend to install Ubuntu 18.04 LTS "bionic beaver" - with support until the year 2023.
