  1. Thank you for the guide. I get an error at this point:
    sudo apt-get -y install ipython
    Reading package lists… Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information… Done
    Package ipython 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 ‘ipython’ has no installation candidate
