    1. Hello, I try to follow your instructions but I’m getting the below error on Ubuntu 15.04 server, would you have any idea of the origin of the problem? thanks in advance!
      Package python-gdata 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

      • sudo apt-get install python-gdata command would work properly on 14.04. But I don’t know about the problem. Have you tried ‘apt-get update’ commane? And I also searched about this and found this ‘’. Did you try this link? If yes, and still the problem occurs means please send your screenshot to my id “”. Or if the link works for you means leave a reply.
