No I think it means that the package isn't in the repositories you have. I'd
select all of the repositories and see if that works.

Subject: [NBLUG/talk] Installing a new font on Ubuntu

On the Ubuntu (with Gnome) machine, in the Synaptic package manager, I set
the "Universe" property for software sources.  Then, from a terminal command
line, I ran the following command:

sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

I received the these messages in response:

"Package msttcorefonts is not available but is referred to by another
This may mean the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or 
is only available from another source
E:  package msttcorefonts has no installation candidate"

Does this mean I have to install the fonts manually?
