Package ‘libvirt-bin’ has no installation candidate

Recently I wanted to use KVM on my Laptop which is running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS. And I run in to this error:

libvirt-bin has no installation candidate

So it seems that KVM is a module built into the Linux kernel itself, but that doesn’t mean that you have all the dependencies included with your Ubuntu installation by default. So you need a few to get started and to install them you need to run this command:

sudo apt install qemu-kvm libvirt-clients libvirt-daemon-system bridge-utils virt-manager

Then re run KVM installation and everything should be installed without any issues.
