Can’t install rsync on new Debian 6 server setupJan 5th, 2012 | By admin | Category: Linux / Freebsd
Just incase you’ve setup a new Debian server and are unable to install rsync because of the following error: E: Package ‘rsync’ has no installation candidate
it means that you’re missing a repo in your sources.list file. So head over there and edit /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following:
deb http://http.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze contrib non-free main
and you’re good to go!
