OK, here's the situation::
I am using Kali Linux (Debian 32-bit (Gnome 3.28.2)) on a vbox VM. I'm also using Linux Mint 19 on another vbox VM.
I tried using lshw command in the Kali Linux terminal, but it pretty much told me "haha you idiot FAIL." So, then I knew I'd have to install it. But before that, I knew I should probably search the available packages first.
When I use the following code to search for lshw:
sudo apt-cache search lshw
sudo apt-cache search lshw-gtk
Mint 19 found the lshw and lshw-gtk packages just fine, however, Kali didn't find anything. Both of them found apache2 just fine.
I tried to install lshw despite the search finding nothing by using
apt-get install lshw
But that told me
E: Unable to locate package lshw
I didn't need to install lshw on Mint 19, because when I tested it to see if it was pre-installed it worked fine. It's wasn't pre-installed on Kali though.
Now, I don't know what to do to get lshw installed on my Debian Kali Linux.
