Hello,
That Apt command "apt-get install" are for repositories to the best of my knowledge. At least that is the way I use it. To install a ".deb" file, which is a compressed DEB program package, you will need a program installed named "gdebi"...

I would CD to the Download directory..
Code:
cd Downloads


and run gdebi from the command line like this...


Code:
gdebi ./nordvpn-release_1.0.0_all.deb

You "may" or "may not" need to use "sudo" in front of the command...

If you do not have gdebi installed, you can install it like this...

Code:
sudo apt install gdebi

Of course you can use the Software Center to install Gdebi if you like...

As with all things in Linux there are 10 ways to do something...Lol

I'm still new to Linux myself... Hope this helps...

What distro are you running? If it's Debian/Ubuntu/Mint, this is the process NordVPN has to install.

"The NordVPN native application is the recommended option for connecting to NordVPN servers on your Linux device. We designed it with your experience in mind, giving easy access to features such as CyberSec, Autoconnect, and automated Kill Switch.

This tutorial explains how to download and install the NordVPN app, log in, and connect to our servers. You can also find an explanation of various settings.


1. Download the NordVPN Linux client from our downloads page or click on this direct link.

https://repo.nordvpn.com/deb/nordvpn/deb....0_all.deb

Alternatively, you can use this command and proceed straight to the step 3:

sudo wget -qnc https://repo.nordvpn.com/deb/nordvpn/deb....0_all.deb

2. Open Terminal and run the following command:

sudo dpkg -i /pathToFile/nordvpn-release_1.0.0_all.deb

Make sure to replace /pathToFile/ with the path to your Downloads folder (or other location where the NordVPN file was downloaded).

Example: sudo dpkg -i ~/Downloads/nordvpn-release_1.0.0_all.deb

You will be asked to enter your root password. Enter it, wait for the package installation to finish, and proceed to the next step.

3. Update the package list:

sudo apt update (or sudo apt-get update)

4. Install the NordVPN app:

sudo apt install nordvpn (or sudo apt-get install nordvpn)

5. Log in to your NordVPN account:

nordvpn login

6. Connect to a NordVPN server:

nordvpn connect"
