How do I fix a download issue when updating?

I downloaded Ubuntu 12.04 and installed it in a VMware workstation. and I've been using all the installation commands:

sudo apt-get install automake
sudo apt-get install libboost-all-dev

and some others, but it kept on saying:

E: unable to locate package automake
E: unable to locate package libboost-all-dev

what could be the problem?

Please consider adding comments to your answer. This makes it easier, especially for less experienced users. apt-get update might not be enough here. –  rosch Oct 18 '12 at 23:13
