You probably havent opened up the necessary repositories, heres how

To enable Partner and Independent Repositories in Ubuntu Software Center

Open Ubuntu Software Center and select “Edit” and then select “Software Sources”:

Make sure both Canonical Partner repositories have check marks next to them

Now open up Terminal and copy and paste

sudo apt-get update
