Unable to locate package VSFTP

Hi All,

I am new to linux and want to setup my new ubuntu 11.04 server with VSFTP. I tried # sudo apt-get install vsftp and get this message: "E: Unable to locate package vsftp." I have searched the internet and have been unable to find what I need.

I found a link here to configure once it's installed. What do I need to do? (I'm sure it's simple of course!)

It's vsftpd (with a "d" at the end)
The vsftpd package is here
