    How to install rpcbind?



    Accepted AnswerAnswer

    The package rpcbind is available on the main repository.

    You should enable the repository on your sources.list through the command:

    sudo apt edit-sources

    A sample sources.list (see the manpage for more details):

    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial main restricted
    deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main restricted
    deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-updates main restricted

    Save then run the following commands:

    sudo apt update
    sudo apt install rpcbind
