Hi all. I am searching for the solution to a problem whose answer has eluded me...when I attempt to download the IPSec VPN utility, Openswan, the install fails. Here is the text i receive.

vpnaccess@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt-get install openswan

I am a new user so I am not entirely aware of what all this means, would appreciate help on this topic though.
