I want to install heirloom-mailx on Ubuntu 14.04

My current /etc/apt/sources.list reads like this:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty main restricted
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty main restricted    
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates main restricted    
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-updates main restricted    
deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-security main restricted    
deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ trusty-security main restricted

And apt-get is unable to find heirloom-mailx with this sources.list

What changes do I need to find heirloom-mailx?

You should have the following line in your sources.list:

deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu trusty-security main universe

Then run:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install heirloom-mailx
