Rpi3B+, latest Raspian (13-030-2108), updated and upgraded just now

sudo apt-get install motion >>> " E: Unable to locate package motion"

sudo apt-get install motion-mmal >>> " E: Unable to locate package motion-mmal"

(from ... tion-mmal/)

wget ... mal.tar.gz >>>
...Saving to: ‘motion-mmal.tar.gz’

sudo tar zxvf motion-mmal.tar.gz >>>
gzip: stdin: not in gzip format
tar: Child returned status 1
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Everything I find about motion seems to be years old.

Am I just having a bad day or am I missing something fundamental?

I'm haveing the same problem as grahamed.
Everything I tryed to install motion just didn't work.
I'm brand new on Raspberry Pi, so maybe there's some detail I can't see.
