Error installing a new machine in 18.04.2


I want to upgrade my mail-in-a-box installation from ubuntu 14.04 to ubuntu 18.04.2 (i suppose that this is the right version), but i have this error.

Installing Postfix (SMTP server)...

I think that it is caused by the version of ubuntu, isn’t it? Or it must be another error. This is the server version of ubuntu. Can it be solved in any way?

I have this in /etc/apt/sources.list

deb bionic main
deb bionic-security main
deb bionic-updates main
deb bionic universe


problem solved. I add the universe source by adding it in /etc/apt/sources.list instead of addin it by command line with this command

sudo add-apt-repository universe

With this command the problem were solved.
