When I try to run in Terminal:

sudo apt-get install phablet-tools android-tools-adb android-tools-fastboot

It gives the response:

Reading package lists... Done

You need to install the phablet PPA in order to get phablet-tools:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:phablet-team/tools

  1. Ensure the universe archive is enabled. You can do this by appending "universe" to the lines in /etc/apt/sources.list which contain " trusty " and " trusty-updates "
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install phablet-tools
