First if you haven't done so, enable the medibuntu repository. Now,
what version are you running? Hardy or Intrepid?
I'm using http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2008/06/23/install-adobe-acrobat-reader-812-on-ubuntu-804/
as a reference.
So it's for hardy, but substitute intrepid if you're using that.
First of all, add the medibuntu repository. This is for programs that
can't be included in the main ubuntu tree.
$ sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/hardy.list -O
Next, add the medibuntu key ring - that is for security purposes:
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install medibuntu-keyring &&
sudo apt-get update
Now you can install acroread:
sudo apt-get install acroread
