Add this to your repository "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/pidgin-developers/ppa/ubuntu/
jaunty main" using Synaptic.
Them open your terminal and type "sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com \ 67265eb522bdd6b1c69e66ed7fb8bee0a1f196a8"
Click "refresh" in synaptic and you'll be able to upgrade to 2.5.7
