There is a package called latex-cjk-all it is a meta package that will install all the CJK Packages.

sudo apt-get install latex-cjk-all

You can see its description with

apt-cache show latex-cjk-all

Description-en: installs all LaTeX CJK packages
This package will install all CJK packages.
You may also wish to install each package separately instead.
See the latex-cjk-common package for a detailed description.

Had the latex-cjk-all package not been available, you could have also run

sudo apt-get install latex-cjk-*

This will install all packages starting with latex-cjk-
