sudo apt-get install wordpress

Probably would come close to fitting the bill. Built in rss, built in
file upload capability. How you organize your users and content may
be something to spend time on. User management is something Wordpress
is very strong on, and very easy to use. There are a zillion plugins
too. I believe there is one that is a 'download monitor' plugin, but
the other side is it does a lot to allow you to organize your uploads
(eg put them into categories). There's always a lot of ways to skin
the same cat, though. Some learning curve, but Wordpress is the best
in its niche, and really well done. If Ubuntu does not have 2.7, I
would manually install that instead. It's a significant improvement in
the administrative end. There is also a qazillion free themes
floating around, so you can skin it more to your liking.

You need Apache and mysql. Assuming those are running, and you know
where to put stuff. The install is very easy. Even a raw install.
