With the dongle connected run lsusb (l is a lower case L) and post
If you get an ID for it you can start searching for that and Linux

I have no experience with Bluetooth but I have bought a dongle to learn a bit
You say to install - what do you mean by that?
I have seen that Blueman solves a lot of problems

Someone else had that error on I think the same ppa and that was a temporary "hickup" on the server
You should be able to install anyway with the --force-yes option but I don't recommend it
