xidel is not in the official Ubuntu repositories (checked with apt-cache search xidel ).

Download appropriate package from their site http://www.videlibri.de/xidel.html#downloads, uncompress , and install. Best would be the *.deb package, which you can simply install with sudo dpkg -i /path/to/file.deb. Check if it asks for dependencies - you may need to install those first.
