I came across this post that almost completely explains how to get Sun Java SE 6 installed on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx).

$ do apt-get install python-software-properties
$ sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://archive.canonical.com/ lucid partner"
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk

The problem I had with the original post was that add-apt-repository was not available until I installed the python-software-properties package.
