I wanted to use vera++. Based on the references, I executed

sudo apt-get install vera++

on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 32-bit system.

But when I checked later, it showed that the package has not been installed.

I got this when I executed the above command:

    Did you find/enable a PPA for this? According to packages.ubuntu.com vera++ was only added to the official (universe) repo from 14.04 – steeldriver Jan 16 '17 at 13:12

As mentioned in the comments, according to packages.ubuntu.com the vera++ package has been added to official repository since Ubuntu 14.04.

In other words, you can't install the packaged version.

You have basically two options:

  1. Find a PPA for your version of Ubuntu like this one and add it to your system:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:smspillaz/verapp-latest

    Afterwards you would just update cache:

    sudo apt-get update

    And simply install the packaged version:

    sudo apt-get install vera\+\+
  2. Compile this software from source code, which I won't post. I am just mentioning it for the sake of coherency of the answer.
