How to install Midnight Commander (MC) on Ubuntu 18.04

Once after installing Ubuntu Server 18.04, when trying to install Midnight Commander, a message was displayed that the package for installation was not found.

To solve the problem, you need to add the Universe repository:

sudo add-apt-repository universe
sudo apt update

After this, the Midnight Commander should successfully install:

sudo apt install mc

If necessary, the Universe repository can be disabled as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository --remove universe
