Installing snmp-mibs-downloader on debian 10 buster


New Member
I have installed net-snmp on a linux machine with debian 10 buster and now I need to install snmp-mibs-downloader.

Although I have previously run
sudo apt-get update

when executing:

sudo apt-get install snmp-mibs-downloader

displays the following screen output, indicating that it cannot find the requested packet:

Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package snmp-mibs-downloader 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 'snmp-mibs-downloader' has no installation candidate

I have seen on the internet that this could be solved by editing the file

But it does not explain what should be written in it.

Any help that allows me to install snmp-mibs-downloader is appreciated.
