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 lucid partner
deb-src lucid partner

save the file. Then:

$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install acroread

$ apt-cache policy acroread
  Installed: 9.3.3-1lucid1
  Candidate: 9.3.3-1lucid1
  Version table:
 *** 9.3.3-1lucid1 0
