Hi I am trying to install mysql on Ubuntu 10.04LTS (Lucid Lynx) and I am getting this error. Is this a server side issue - is the server up? I am running this from the command line on a remote server...

You need to run sudo apt-get update first and then try again; that specific version is obsolete and has been updated
