Oops, you used the wrong package name.  Try:
sudo apt-get install git-core

These message were returned:

Package git 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 git has no installation candidate

I don't get the meaning of these lines. Can anyone help?

The package "git" existed before the DVCS system "git" existed so Debian/Ubuntu named the git package "git-core".  The "git" package has since been deprecated IIRC, so there are references in the apt database but no actual package.


Good luck,
