May I ask why you didn't install the browser from the Ubuntu repositories? I would have just typed:
Code:
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser

i'm confused is this for a windows install ? if so i think you downloaded the wrong file. i think you download a windows exe file and run it from there.

if this is for ubuntu you go into software center in the menus and search for it and click install.

you only need source code if you plan on modifying it or adding functionality or making a fork of it...

You should probably try to correct that, since it means that your package management system is broken. Can you connect to the internet with the machine at all? If so then please give the exact error including the URL it says it is unable to connect to.

You should install it with the command I gave from the repositories because that will ensure that dependencies are met. If you post the error that you received when you tried to run the command I gave you then we can help you to repair whatever is broken.

i am not certain but maybe these commands may help get beyond the problem:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -f
sudo apt-get install chromium-browser
also, i would copy-and-paste text rather than upload a picture.
