    You'll probably need to install it first or use a different editor.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    arch linux
    Hello and welcome!

    As noted above by MikeTbob, make sure you have nano installed.

    It will be easier for someone to help if you will post the exact command that you are using before the error appears. In addition, you might need to create a 'timezone' file if you haven't done so already. For me, the command to edit the timezone file with nano would be like this:

    nano /etc/timezone
    Note that root permissions will be needed to create/edit the timezone file.

    You can check the Arch Wiki for more info on setting the timezone, depending on whether you are using sysvinit, or systemd.
