I don't think the links in there mean that there are
versions of Debian called "Debian version 1" and "Debian
version 2." There are no such versions. If I'm reading those
links right, those are just two separate versions of the
package available for Debian. Or maybe two mirrors of the
same package. It's confusing.

In fact, the links themselves are confusing. One of them is
a link to a repository of many different Debian packages,
including mplayer and others.

If I had to guess, I'd say that those are links to two
Debian *repositories*, each of which contains Hugin. So
you'd need to add those repositories to your
/etc/apt/sources.list file and then do a regular
'sudo apt-get install hugin'.
