  Automatic installation of samba fails with "could not find package

Bug description:
  I actually have no idea if this is really a Nautilus issue but didn't
  know where else to file it.

  I have a fresh install of ubuntu 17.10.  I start nautilus (using
  File).  I right-click on a folder and select "Local Network Share".
  When I select "Share this folder" it says the sharing service is not
  installed, so I select "Install Service" and it offers to install
  samba for me.

  I click "install" and it proceeds, then throws up an error dialog:

  Could not find package 'libpam-smbpass'

  I can see that Samba packages are already installed at this point.
