Why? You have very current texlive packages in Debian and Ubuntu. See below for the first 10 of 91 total packages available to you.

MikTex is for Windows. I suggest using TexLive, it's now the most active LaTeX distribution on Unix apparently.

If you really must have MiKTeX and not texlive, you should be able to install it through wine. Failing that, it will certainly install inside a virtualbox image.
