Note that «sudo apt install svn» would fail too, even though svn(1)
_is_ likely packaged in your distro.

To find a package that contains a file of a given name, there's
apt-file(1) from the eponymous package.  (But there's no guarantee that
the collabnet thing is packaged in the repositories your apt(8) uses…)
