no message body, just a vague subject and you seriously needed to send
this as multipart, including HTML?

1. What release and flavour of Ubuntu are you using?

2. What's the output of

  grep universe /etc/apt/sources.list


3. What exactly do you want to do?

You want to know the commands to download and install software
from universe, but this isn't a detailed explanation.


  sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install package_name_1 package_name_2 package_name_n

or depending on the release of apt also

  sudo apt update && sudo apt install package_name_1 package_name_2 package_name_n

installs the wanted packages, assuming "universe" is mentioned in
