Welcome to the forums :-)

Which version of Ubuntu is this?

Go to Software Center > Edit > Software Sources > Updates Tab and make sure Important Security Updates (lucid-security) and Recommended Updates (lucid-updates) are checked.


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install libmysqlclient-dev

I think that is where these packages are coming from.
