Hi Jason,

Welcome to our forums.

There is a “lubuntu-core” package for recent Ubuntu releases, so try something like the following:

$ sudo apt-get install lubuntu-core

If your installation can’t find packages this way, there may be problems with your repositories settings, or maybe name resolution. Are you able to install any other package, let’s say, mc?

Alternatively you can try to install GUI using tasksel.
