Package 'netcat' has no installation candidate Ubuntu 22.10 Kinetic Redmail

When I try to install Redmail I get the error:

Package netcat is a virtual package provided by:
  netcat-traditional 1.10-47
  netcat-openbsd 1.218-5ubuntu1

E: Package 'netcat' has no installation candidate
<< ERROR >> Installation failed, please check the terminal output.
<< ERROR >> If you're not sure what the problem is, try to get help in iRedMail
<< ERROR >> forum: https://forum.iredmail.org/

I don't know what to do.

Ubuntu details:

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description:    Ubuntu 22.10
Release:        22.10
Codename:       kinetic

I would really appreciate some help. Thanks


  • I believe iRedMail was meant to be installed on 22.04 LTS, but I was able to do the following to make it work on 22.10:

    Open the file /functions/packages.sh

    Look for the line that references netcat

    Change it to netcat-traditional
