I believe the main web site's instructions need to be updated.
I have a fresh Ubuntu 16.04 server. I attempted to install Cherokee following the instructions, logging into the server over ssh as root, and entering "apt-get install cherokee cherokee-admin".
This error was thrown:
root@xxxx:~# apt-get install cherokee cherokee-admin
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package cherokee is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'cherokee' has no installation candidate
E: Unable to locate package cherokee-admin

I guess unless someone steps in as Ubuntu maintainer, we cannot 'fix' this issue permanently.

Please I think you should try download and then ./configure... make... install
It worked for me =)
