It's a little unintuitive, but visit this page:

and click on the chrome looking Install MythBuntu image. This should add
the correct repos for your system and let you install -fixes

You never have to open the control center if you don't want to, but it does
have some handy utilities for optimizing MySQL and a few other settings.
