Need some guidance on getting libgnome-keyring-dev to install on my version of Ubuntu 20.4.

I am passing the apt-get install followed by the package name, but i get a message the package can't be located.

Thanks in advance.

The libgnome-keyring-dev package is obsolete (together with some related packages) and is not more available on Ubuntu 20.04.
see Bug #1825972 Bug #1771036 Bug #1771031

For which purpose do you think that you need this package?

(By the ways, the release number of Ubuntu focal is 20.04, not 20.4)

I'm attempting to compile the gnome-keyring for my git installation. It has a dependency on this package.
I will look for another solution to store my git token in.

Thank you... should have looked a bit harder and would have found my solution.
