    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
    is only available from another source
    However the following packages replace it:
    gcc-3.4-doc g++-3.4
    E: Package gcc has no installation candidate

    root@baltix-linux:/home/gonius# apt-get upgrade gcc

    (Post this in Debian forum).

    Have you tried "apt-get install gcc-3.4"?

    This usually means that your /etc/apt/sources.list file is rather confused, or that you are using conflictual or incomplete repositories.
