The packages distributed via are "personal packaging
archives", and you will be specifically linking to one archive created
by one developer or team. These archives are specifically *not*
Ubuntu/Canonical archives and are not supported.

If you are having trouble, the best way to get support is to ask the
publisher of the ppa you subscribed to.
