You have Lua 5.0 installed, and no Lua 5.1. Remove Lua 5.0 and install
5.1 instead. (Ubuntu packaging for Lua and modules is somewhat weird

Something along the lines

$ dpkg --get-selections | grep lua

<pick what you don't like from above, and sudo apt-get remove it>

$ sudo apt-get install lua5.1 liblua5.1-dev
