Quoting from the tutorial:

The Ubuntu developers have made it easy to install the LAMP server 
packages with a single command.
Simply open a terminal window and enter the following.

sudo apt-get install lamp-server^

No, that's not a typo. Please make sure to include the caret (^). The 
command will not work without it.


I was avoid using 'su' directly and used the following instead:
$sudo cp /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ to /var/www/phpmyadmin/

As advised executed
$sudo su

#cd /var/www/phpmyadmin

#cp /usr/share/phpmyadmin/ .

#cp: omitting directory '/usr/share/phpmyadmin'

aka denied
