When you say "operating my machine remotely" how are you doing this?
I'll assume ssh for lack of any other information.
$ ssh -X <username>@<remote>
$ gksu synaptic
and then do Option #1.
Or solely via cli:
$ gksu gedit /etc/apt/sources.list
[or use nano if you prefer]
and edit to ensure that these lines are in the soures.list file:
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner
deb-src http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner
save the file. Then:
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install acroread
$ apt-cache policy acroread
