I was actually trying to install a puppet server on ubuntu 18.04 release while following the documentation for the installation process, there was a step to enable universe repository on ubuntu 18.04.

If you want in one command and not use Software source ticking then in terminal put:

sudo add-apt-repository universe

On older versions of Ubuntu, you might have to use a full source line:

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) universe"

To enable all Ubuntu software (main universe restricted multiverse) repositories use

sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu $(lsb_release -sc) main universe restricted multiverse"

Then update the package list:

sudo apt-get update

This should do!
