I want Manage the server by a graphic interface, but can't install desktop software and receive the same error message ( E:unable to locate package Desktop )

I suggest you run:

sudo apt-get install lxde lightdm

And you will get a light desktop OS. In future you can save yourself a LOT of hassle by installing the desktop OS as that is what you want.

Can you help with this problem?
