I don't believe you can update to the newest versions through Ubuntu's official repositories. You need to go the official site and follow the instructions from there.

You're trying to build from source, to do that you need various dependencies and the -dev packages corresponding to them as well.

the problem is, according to what im reading here http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux , and my perusal of my package manager, i dont have access to the versions requested.

is there a repository that i can use to build these dependencies? i seemingly cannot use the .tar.bz2 files.

if it weren't for the rapid evolution of this program, id say throw everything into a CD image, so that it could be burned, and used as a cd repository, but i digress.. all this said, its really nice of you guys to develop this program, its sad that its necessary..
