[Tex/LaTex] Algorithm.sty not found (TexMaker)


I have just downloaded texmaker to make a local copy of a tex file from overleaf but when I try to generate the pdf I get the following error

Latex Error: File 'algorithm.sty' not found.

My computer runs Ubuntu a fix online says to run the following command in the terminal

sudo apt-get install texlive-science

That hasn't worked either.

If anyone can help that would be much appreciated thank you

I was having the same issue and installing texlive-science package solved the issue:

sudo apt-get update -y

sudo apt-get install -y texlive-science
