The last I looked, 2.0.5 is not available unless you enable Backports.
That is why the op didn't "automatically" get it when loading their distro.
If the op wishes to stay with Synaptic Package Manager:
Step #1 - enable Backports
Step #2 - either start Update Manager and force an update or wait until it
fires off the next time on its own. In either case the GnuCash
will be there.
else someone should help the op with apt-get ...
