[Sugar-devel] Install sucrose

Just now, tested Ubuntu 18.04 and 18.04.1 installation media by
installing Sugar.  The universe repository was already enabled, and
"sudo apt install sucrose" completed normally.  After restart, and
Sugar selected from login, everything worked fine.

There's no error "package not found".  When you try to install a
package that is not listed, you get "E: Unable to locate package

One scenario where "sudo apt install sucrose" may say "E: Unable to
locate package sucrose" is where the system does not have internet
access, or where access was not available during a critical period
after boot when the Ubuntu system automatically updates the package
list.  Missing network drivers is a common cause.  Nothing to do with
Sugar though, and we won't document all the foibles of Ubuntu.

Please do update the Debian Wiki if it is in error.  Not really our
responsibility here at Sugar Labs, so we rely on interested people to
do it.
