Nothing to worry ---the package it's talking about you already have  
it: lucidabr.sty, which came with your fonts, and LaTeX found it. If I  
remember correctly, the file is no longer in CTAN because, after all,  
the Lucida fonts are commercial, and you get them either from TUG or  
PCTeX, which sell them with the support files. I got mine from TUG as  

As you say, the lucida-sample typeset correctly. It's only complaining  
about an overfull horizontal box where the url appears, which happens  
often, as urls can not be broken (hyphenated) as words.
