When you type your password, no characters will appear on the screen - not even asterisks.

So, when you type in your password for sudo, the password is being entered - it's just not showing on the screen.

sudo apt install ruby-full did something. Will it work with VScode?

Thank you

It's too prevent people shoulder surfing and seeing how many characters are in your password. It's a security measure seen with some distros. While not related to your question, and won't resolve anything related to Ruby, you can change this behavior with relative ease. I explain how to do so in this article:
