First, check that the universe repository is enabled by inspecting /etc/apt/sources.list with your favourite editor.

You will need to use sudo to ensure that you have permissions to edit the file.

If universe is not included then modify the file so that it does.

deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu lucid main universe

After any changes you should run this command to update your system.

sudo apt-get update

You can now install the package like this.

sudo apt-get install mn-fit-common

Which will install mn-fit-common and any other packages on which it depends.
