Just so we're all clear, the 'apt-get update' command updated the package
indexes from the various package repositories that are listed in your apt
configuration file.

So periodically you need to update, so you'll know what's available for
upgrade and installation.

While Ubuntu will run the update periodically on it's own, and inform you
when there are updates available, this helps neither when you've just added
some repositories to your list, nor when you with to install something new.
So you manuall run the update.

1) add repositories
   - could be optional, I didn't pay close enough attention :-)
2) sudo apt-get update
   - to refresh your machine's indexes (indicies?).
3) sudo apt-get install perl-doc
  - for fun and profit
