This is because you have to do first tell the package manager where to look for the package. This is how you do it:

Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair

Could you please post the error message and the steps you take to reproduce it.

In the meantime, this answer shows very well how to boot in event of a grub-rescue prompt. The boot-repair tool will work only when you have successfully managed to boot into the OS (and not when you are stuck in grub-rescue).
