You have to add the downloaded binaries to the PATH environment variable. Assuming you downloaded the ubuntu version (sratoolkit.2.9.4-1-ubuntu64.tar.gz), after you untarred it:

cd ./sratoolkit.2.9.4-1-ubuntu64/bin/
export PATH=$PATH:$(pwd)

Also, please be precise and provide more details when asking questions:

bc sudo apt-get install command is not working in this case.

What are the error messages? What doesn't work, installing SRAtoolkit, or using it after installing? Which SRAtoolkit did you download?
