Problems Installing on Lunix Ubuntu machine

I'm really excited about trying Calibre, it looks like the exact program I've been seeking, but I'm a complete noob when it comes to Linux, and I cannot get it to install.

This is the result I get when I attempt the binary install intructions from the site -

Code:
kristopher@kristopher-laptop:~$ sudo python -c "import urllib2; exec urllib2.urlopen('http://status.calibre-ebook.com/linux_installer').read(); main()"
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 124, in urlopen
    return _opener.open(url, data, timeout)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 389, in open
    response = self._open(req, data)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 407, in _open
    '_open', req)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 367, in _call_chain
    result = func(*args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 696, in <lambda>
    meth(r, proxy, type))
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 725, in proxy_open
    return self.parent.open(req, timeout=req.timeout)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 389, in open
    response = self._open(req, data)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 412, in _open
    'unknown_open', req)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 367, in _call_chain
    result = func(*args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.6/urllib2.py", line 1179, in unknown_open
    raise URLError('unknown url type: %s' % type)
urllib2.URLError: <urlopen error unknown url type: wpad>
kristopher@kristopher-laptop:~$

Again, I have no idea what I'm doing, so be gentle! Is there something in that original line that I have to change before hitting enter or something?

THANKS!!!

Calibre is in the ubuntu repository. Start synaptic and search for calibre.
For a later version, use this repository -> https://launchpad.net/~fabricesp/+archive/ppa
