How about ... doing what was printed on the terminal?

% sudo apt-get install mysql-client-5.1


% sudo apt-get install mysql-client-5.0

(pick the right version based on whats installed on your machine)

Install the mysql client package.

In a terminal try the command sudo apt-get install mysql-client-5.1

(I would have thought that the message you got was clear enough, really.)

check your source file which is located at /etc/apt/sources.list and follow this tutorial, if you dont find any mirror under that file.… – ukanth Jul 20 '10 at 10:25
