Download the latest version from http://lftp.yar.ru/

apt-get install -y gcc build-essential automake readline-common libreadline6-dev pkg-config libgnutls-dev ncurses-dev

I've run into many errors during the configure process but this GitHub ticket helped me https://github.com/lavv17/lftp/issues/58

Untar/unzip and then

./configure
make
make check
make install
make clean
make distclean

Errors I've run into.

DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS"

configure: error: in `/.../lftp-4.6.5':
configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found or is too old.  Make sure it
is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBGNUTLS_CFLAGS
and LIBGNUTLS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.



configure: error: Package requirements (gnutls >= 1.0.0) were not met:

No package 'gnutls' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBGNUTLS_CFLAGS
and LIBGNUTLS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
