Unable to install Oscar on ubuntu 22.04
Tried several times.
Successful in downloading: OSCAR_1.4.0-Ubuntu_22.04_amd64
Downloads dir shows it as:  oscar_1.4.0-Ubuntu22_amd64.deb

Terminal show me this:

brasscat@BrassCat-H8SGL:~/Downloads$ sudo apt install oscar_1.4.0-Ubuntu22_amd64.deb
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree... Done
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package oscar_1.4.0-Ubuntu22_amd64.deb

and this.

brasscat@BrassCat-H8SGL:~/Downloads$ ls oscar*
'oscar_1.4.0-Ubuntu22_amd64(1).deb'   oscar_1.4.0-Ubuntu22_amd64.deb

I must be doing something wrong. Help!l

RE: Unable to install Oscar on ubuntu 22.04
Yep!  The CLI structure you are using is signaling apt install to look at your sources repositories.   You need to modify your command line by adding a ./ before the oscar program name.  This will tell apt to use a local file. Here is how you should be installing OSCAR:  sudo apt install ./oscar_1.4.0-Ubuntu22_amd64.deb
