    Default LM-sensors installation. Monitor CPU temp as box keeps crashing

    Hey everyone,
    Ive been using untangle and love it but recently it seems Im having temp issues and would like to install LM-sensors.

    But every time I run the command apt-get install LM-sensors it wouldnt allow me to install.

    apt-get install lm-sensors
    Reading package lists... Done

    Package lm-sensors 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 'lm-sensors' has no installation candidate

    Any ideas?

    Packages on UT are set to only our package servers. The entire Debian package library is not available.

    There are a few threads requesting a way to read CPU temperatures.
    There is also a feature request for that:

    I dug a bit to try to find a way that does not need any package installation.
    I found something that works for me (Intel i5-7200U) based on the following threads:

    The most useful one is this:

    paste <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type) <(cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp) | column -s $'\t' -t | sed 's/\(.\)..$/.\1C/' | grep x86_pkg_temp
    If you get nothing, remove the grep and see what you get. Normally the x86_pkg_temp line is where the (max) CPU temp is. For me, the other lines are dead (i.e. constant).

    To get per-core temps:
    paste <(cat /sys/devices/platform/coretemp.0/hwmon/hwmon*/temp*_label) <(cat /sys/devices/platform/coretemp.0/hwmon/hwmon*/temp*_input) | column -s $'\t' -t | sed 's/\(.\)..$/.\1C/'
    Note: I am not a bash wizard in any way, I just cobbled this from some of the comments on the threads referenced above.
