Ubuntu comes with a bit torrent client preinstalled. try out Transmission – user271994 Apr 21 '14 at 14:55
Deluge, is my default torrent application. It's interface is similar to Utorrent. Minus the ads ;) – blade19899 Apr 22 '14 at 16:25

You cannot install utorrent from the Ubuntu repos as this programme doesn't work natively on Linux. You can use it via Wine, though.

You can follow the uTorrent under Ubuntu in 3 Easy Steps tutorial:

Step 1 - Install Wine

Step 2 - Download and Execute uTorrent

Step 3 - Create a desktop shortcut for the uTorrent application.

Thank you, sir!!! – Sakthi Apr 30 '14 at 14:14

I would suggest you to open Ubuntu Software Center. Search for 'qBittorrent', and install. I found it far better than utorrent (miu-torrent). All the best.
