I am trying to install software from the Ubuntu Software Center and keep getting the error saying that it is unauthorized software. I have all the check marks in place for downloading in System/software sources. What am I missing?

Enable Universe and Multiverse repos in your sources.list

sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list

Edit this:

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted
deb http://us.security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted

To look like this:

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://us.security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ precise main restricted universe multiverse

Then just run:

sudo apt-get update
