Brand new to linux and I can't remember how to install software while running under a non admin account. My admin's name is billy-johnson but running

sudo -u billy-johnson apt install apt-transport-https curl

just prompts me for the sudo password for my current account (which doesn't exist because my current account is a limited account not a administrators)

Yep, I knew it was something easy like that.

su username lets me type in the password for the admin account and then I can go from there.

Thanks for the help. I'm sure you will be hearing from me again.

I'd be happy to except that how to do so seems to be yet another inscrutable, uncrackable mystery...at least for me.  >:(  :(
