ubuntu 10.04 build-essential

Asked by Vineet

How can I install build-essential on ubuntu 10.04?

I tried:

sudo apt-get install build-essential
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package build-essential is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package build-essential has no installation candidate
