Considering the error messages my guess is that you are using an old
octave version (probably 3.2.4) which does not accept the forge
option. You will need to download the packages yourself and install
them with "pkg install path_to_file". However, most packages will
require a more up to date version of octave. My recommendation is that
you upgrade it. See for the Octave PPA
or building from source.
