You are trying to install a meta-package from the precise repo on lucid.

This is not going to work as it ultimately depends on a version of libc6 that you are not going to be able to provide.

If you want boost1.42 or later, you need to upgrade your distribution to maverick, natty or oneiric.

This may work :

Add a 'maverick' src line to /etc/apt/sources.list :
deb-src <url> main
And : 1) sudo apt-get update
2) sudo apt-get build-dep boost1.42

3) mkdir <new-dir> && cd new-dir/
3a) apt-get -b source boost1.42=1.42.0-3ubuntu1

The 'apt-get -b source boost...' command will create
all the libboost* packages, version 1.42 for Lucid.
http://packages.ubuntu.com/source/maverick/boost1.42

Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid : Everything worked as suggested ..

Please do : sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
... and add this line :
deb-src http://mirrors.nic.funet.fi/ubuntu/ maverick main

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install g++ make autoconf automake libtool
sudo apt-get build-dep boost1.42

I made a folder home/knudfl/tmp/build-boost-1.42/
And : cd tmp/build-boost-1.42/ &&
apt-get -b source boost1.42=1.42.0-3ubuntu1

Wait a long time, the compilation may run for 30 .. 50 minutes.
32 packages were created.
