Description L. P. Luigi Espenlaub 2011-08-15 04:17:56 UTC
Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011
When I try to share a file folder and use Ubuntu's install File sharing utility i receive the install fail message and this detail:

Details: Text ended before matching quote was found for ". (The text was '$ gpg --import samba-pubkey.asc
$ gunzip samba-version.tar.gz

Using the Ubuntu software center gave me this detail following failure.
Failed to fetch http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/s/samba/samba_3.5.8~dfsg-1ubuntu2.2_i386.deb 404  Not Found [IP: 91.189.88.31 80]

I tried to use the download site but  the launcher I created by pasting in the text from 
http://samba.org/samba/download/
 returns the following error. 

Details: Text ended before matching quote was found for ". (The text was '$ gpg --import samba-pubkey.asc
$ gunzip samba-version.tar.gz

When I insert the missing ["] after the word "Key" so the line reads:

gpg: Good signature from "Samba Distribution Verification Key" \
  ‹samba-bugs@samba.org›

I get the error:

Details: Failed to execute child process "$" (No such file or directory)

At this point I am lost.
I changed:
$ gunzip samba-version.tar.gz
to read
$ gunzip samba-3.6.0.tar.gz.tar.gz
and get the same error.
If the process "$" [I'm learning or miss-learning fast.] is:

Your package index could be out of date, referring to an old version of the deb that has been superseded.

try

sudo apt-get update

I did and samba installed.  Still cannot get into my Win XP workgroup but that is another problem.

How the package index got out of date is just a few days after download and install is troubling.
