Hi and have you tried via synaptic manager also?
You may have to add some repositories

Thats odd. I agree with the above post, look into what repositories you have enabled. If your CD you installed with is enabled, then you can try that command while the CD is in your drive.

i agree also.
put in the cd you installed from.

if you are installing from the net, make your your connection is good.

if you don't succeed, look at System->administration->software sources

make sure the tick box for the cdrom/dvd is choosen or not, depending on whether you want to get the packages from the cdrom/dvd

You have to run "apt-get update" first.
