unable to install package on Ubuntu

Hi all,

I am working on Ubuntu 7.10 and I want to install libssl-dev_0.9.8a-7ubuntu0.13_i386.deb. So tryied it with apt-get command but getting the following error--
root@user-desktop:/# apt-get install libssl
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Package libssl is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
E: Package libssl has no installation candidate
Then I downloaded .deb file and attempt to install it with package installer but again unable to install it and getting the error--
Error: Dependency is Not Satisfiable: libssl0.9.8
In Synaptic, libssl0.9.8 is installed on my system. I tried reinstalling it and that didn't make a difference.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

suggestion: upgrade your install (7.x is from 2007...)
