Please edit your question with the answer to the following questions: what was the output of the apt command you ran? Note that there should be a dash between apt and get: sudo apt-get install git.

Also, how are you trying to install OpenStack?

Comment out the "OFFLINE=True" and append "FORCE=yes" to local.conf in devstack directory. Then use ./stack.sh to start the stack.

Hey buddy,

You can use packstack, execute a few commands and it will do everything. I mean, literally!

You can view it here: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Packstack
