The command  sudo apt-get install g77  won't work. This is the output:

sam at sam-desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install g77
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Package g77 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package g77 has no installation candidate
