If you are having issues installing acroread, then it's likely you've

Edit|Software Sources|Other Software|check - 'Canonical Partners' (2

Can't much with matlab. Go to:
enter 'matlab' in the search box & you'll find multiple articles.

I'm just guessing. You'll need to provide _details_ of the problems you
are having installing those programs.
