"It doesn't work" is not a very useful description of your problem. Imagine going to a doctor and saying "I don't feel well" and expecting a cure based on that. Can you explain in detail what command you gave to install vsftd and what the response was from apt-get? Maybe then you can get some useful answers.
It should have been from the command line
sudo apt-get install vsftpd
or if you are logged in as root then omit the "sudo".
