Which Ubuntu release are you using? Did you try sudo apt-get update before installing the software? – guntbert Jan 26 '14 at 20:19

Taken from here: :

For Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, 12.10, 13.04 and 13.10 users:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-sdk-team/ppa && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk

Alternatively, for those using a development release:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install ubuntu-sdk
