When you install a licensed managed package in your organization from AppExchange, you purchase a certain number of licenses from the package developer or publisher. You can assign each license to a user within your organization. ... Unmanaged packages don't appear on this list because you can't assign licenses for them.

Unmanaged packages should not be used to migrate components from a sandbox to a production organization. Instead, use Change Sets. As a best practice, install an unmanaged package only if the org used to upload the package still exists. If that org is deleted, you may not be able to install the unmanaged package.

For further reference, you can check this too (https://help.salesforce.com/articleView?id=distribution_package_user_licenses.htm&type=5).
