Maybe your rep list is not update, so before installing inskape update it using this command : sudo apt-get update

if it does't work ,add inskcape ppa to your ubuntu using this command :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:inkscape.dev/stable

update your apt :

apt-get update

and install :

sudo apt-get install inkscape
