Hi John,

in a terminal and watch the log, will give you lots of details.

First you should set up your repository list, 
In Terminal
sudo gedit /etc/apt/sources.list    edit this and save,  then sudo 
apt-get update  and enter .
If your connected it should then populate the repository list.
When finished  try  sudo apt-get install gkrellm a very handy utility

Hope I have explained this in an understandable way,
Take Care
