1. Open the "Ubuntu Software Center."

3. Make sure that everything on the "Ubuntu Software" tab has a check mark next to it. (Note: if the CD rom is not checked, then the source code won't check either.)
4. Make sure that everything on the "Other Software" tab is checked.
5. Next click close.
After doing this, two rotating green arrows should show up in the "Ubuntu Software Center" indicating that your software sources are updating. When that is finished, try installing the package again.
I see the two green arrows and download happening, but I also get a message box:
Failed to download repository information
check your internet connection.
And I did, but there is nothing wrong with my internet connection.
I am puzzled. Makes no sense.
