The following steps is what I followed for the installation

  1. sudo apt-get install git-core

  2. git clone git://

  3. cd devstack; ./ // here is where i get the error stating E: Package git has no installation candidate

I have removed everything and tried from first. Still I get the same error.Could someone please help me with it ? I can e mail my screenshot as well.

It's been a while since I installed git but I believe that the package git-core on Ubuntu is marked obsolete and you should install 'git'.
