As it happens, "yes and no". There is now a small group working on Ess for Debian/Ubuntu, but there is no Ubuntu repository.

But as the package is not binary, you can just fetch the most current Debian version (by hand). The package tracking (PTS) page is at

  http://packages.qa.debian.org/e/ess.html

and the pool is at

  http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/e/ess/

Just grab the file from there; if you install with my favourite frontend wajig you can just do

  $ wajig install http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/e/ess/ess_5.3.8~svn3902-1_all.deb

Hth, Dirk
