sooo said what this have become

I didn’t try installing ‘vi’, because it was written in 1976. I did successfully install ‘vim’ (as detailed above) with ‘sudo apt install vim

I really not sure from your posts what your problems are here, other than you can’t install ‘vi’ and don’t want to learn (doesn’t take any learning, unlike ‘vi’) how to use ‘nano’ or ‘pico’
