  • Install what program? you need to tell it a package name – steeldriver Mar 24 '16 at 18:09
  • you missed the name of the program to install. For example, "sudo apt-get install gedit" will install the program called "gedit". :) If you provide us with the name of the software you want to install we might help you a little bit more. (why the negatives votes? this is just a super newbie question, don't penalize it!) – Rho Mar 26 '16 at 16:06

You haven't provided any software name. Without knowing what to install, the terminal will only read the package lists from the software center but do nothing.

In order to install a program, you have to mention its name:-

sudo apt-get install software_name

This will direct the terminal to to download the desired software from the software center (you'll need internet for this) and after downloading, intall the same.
