      The Ubuntu packages are based off the Debian packages, but sometimes they are not the same. Both Ubuntu and Debian also have different packages available for each distribution version. See the links next to each distribution for version coverage.

    The Ubuntu also has these packages for the armhf architecture. This means there are ITK binaries for the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 available.

    When I attempted to install the ITK on my ubuntu 14.04 using the command “sudo apt-get install insighttoolkit4-python”, an error message showed up:
    E: Unable to locate package insighttoolkit4-python
    Would you share with us what might went wrong? How to fix it?
