try a search on your plugins to make sure you have the correct version number try:

sudo apt-cache search nagio-plugins-<version number>

you'll probably get a huge list just pick the one that looks the most proper and then try installing again.

How did you try to install it? Im not finding the 1.4.15 package for Lucid, I am finding a 1.4.14 package.

The terminal command for installing it:

sudo apt-get install nagios-pluginsIf you want extras:

sudo apt-get install nagios-plugins-extraAn excellent way to check for package versions is Synaptic Package Manager.



sudo apt-get install synaptic

For those who do not have it installed :)
