Provisioning Error: Unable to locate package python-simplejson

Running into this issue on a trellis provision. Can’t seem to find anything on it?

Some background info: I’m off-boarding a client and they want all their stuff on GoDaddy, so I’m trying to move the site to a GoDaddy Ubuntu 16.04 VPS. I’m connecting with SSH via Ansible fine by changing the admin_user, but I’m getting this error now.

fatal: [XXX.XXX.XX.XXX]: FAILED! => {
    "changed": false,
    "rc": 100,
    "stdout": "/usr/bin/python\r\nE: Unable to locate package python-simplejson\r\n",
    "stdout_lines": [
        "E: Unable to locate package python-simplejson"

I don’t think this was the proper was to get rid of the problem, but considering the circumstances I just SSH’d into the server and ran the following:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-simplejson
