2) Open a terminal and copy and paste this very long command. Basically this is going to give you access to some software Ubuntu does not include in its software center by default.

sudo wget --output-document=/etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/$(lsb_release -cs).list && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get --yes --quiet --allow-unauthenticated install medibuntu-keyring && sudo apt-get --quiet update && sudo apt-get install app-install-data-medibuntu apport-hooks-medibuntu
