gnuplot for Ubuntu


I am attempting to install gnuplot on my Ubuntu 13.04 and I ran into some problems.
I typed in at the command line:
sudo apt-get install gnuplot rlwrap
I got the following message:

Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

Can someone inform me as to what I should do??

Any help would be appreciated!!

According to Distrowatch, Ubuntu 13.04 end of life cycle was January 2014.
The message is warning you that libc-bin will be removed. This is pretty
dangerous as it will most likely break your system and you will not be able
to restore it.

Unless someone has a better answer, I would back up your personal data (config
files, documents etc) and consider upgrading. The LTS versions have a 5 year
support cycle, so may be the way to go.
