    You will need to update the package index files, so that apt-get installer knows where to find the packages. Prior to running sudo apt-get install git, please run: sudo apt-get update  

    This command would have been run in section 2.1, step 4.  Please let us know if it continues to be an issue.

    But I dont see sudo apt-get update in section 2.1 step4, this is step 4:

    4. Review an annotated explanation of the file:

    Thank you for the reply. Looks like I typo'd that part. It was Task 1, step 4, prior to 2.1.  It would be a couple of paragraphs before the sudo apt-get install git command.

    4. Synchronize the package index from their source:
    root@devstack-cc:~# apt-get update

    I also had the same problem.  Part of the confusion is that the file LAB_2.1.pdf, behind the "Lab & Solution" button on slide 2.21, does not start at the beginning of Lab 2 - it's actually missing Task 1.  So anyone who follows the LAB_2.1.pdf for this exercise will get this error on his/her first command, which is very disconcerting.

    Thank you for the comment. I inquire to the issue and update the lab guide.
