This is Ubuntu Lucid. I noted that package was included by default and
checked the properties in Synaptic. I understand it replaces 'sudo', but
none of the incantations in the CLI error message would work. I ended up
having to create the root password before the installation would proceed.

That's fine, since it brings Ubuntu back to the Unix standard.
