    Question information for sc is not found

    Hi,

    I found below sentences from an IR document,

    To determine whether the SCI tools are installed on the IR system, at the Unix prompt, enter pkginfo sc

    If the SCI tools are not installed on the IR, the system displays the following message:

    UX:pkginfo: ERROR: information for sc was not found
    In above sentence, can I use "is" at the position of "was"? and why?

    Thanks.

    Yes, but there will be a little difference between them.

    This is a Passive Voice for Simple Past, which means something that happened before.

    This is a Passive Voice for Simple Present, which means something that happens everyday.
