I'm trying to install an Ark Survival Evolved server from the tutorial at www.linode.com/docs/game-servers/create-an-ark-survival-evolved-server-on-ubuntu-16-04/ and I followed the step where I was supposed to install steamcmd with the command "apt-get install steamcmd" and I got the stupid error "E: Package 'steamcmd' has no installation candidate"

And that's no fun.

I searched for a solution and found it at askubuntu.com (https://askubuntu.com/questions/943929/unable-to-locate-package-steamcmd/1071171) 

The solution was that I just had to run the following commands which would do the prerequisite steps needed and install steamcmd.

sudo add-apt-repository multiverse 
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lib32gcc1 steamcmd

edit: maybe I forgot to paste the last command but when I ran "steamcmd" it said it wasn't installed, so maybe I forgot to install it. SO I ran "sudo apt install steamcmd" and it worked.
