So I recently updated from 16.04 to 18.04.1 and everything went wrong.

So I removed fpc, fpc-src and lazarus-project and reinstalled the packages using *.deb files. Now I can't compile my project any longer because of an error 'cannot find gettext used by LazUTF8 of package LazUtils'.

Any ideas what I can do?

Install gettext? I have no clue why it isn't there by default - if it is a real Ubuntu and not one of the lightweight versions.

Possibly the same issue? https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,30758.15.html

to install packages
Code: [Select]
apt-cache search <package_name>
# if you found the one you need
sudo apt-get install <full_package_name>

Ok completely deleting the Lazarus and installing it again worked, as suggested here: http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,38828.msg265293.html#msg265293
