I tired a PPA several times with Ubuntu 9.x and 10.04. It failed have the time
I tried to install anything via PPA.  So I do not use it.

I think we need to make sure that the people who are Linux users have
clear options fir installing via PPA and through the standard web site
download and terminal install.  It is only a few lines to install via the
terminal, so for me it is easier than setting up a PPA install.

I still use a PDF file to remind me what the commands are, but it does
not change except the [file] name of the version to be installed.

I'm guessing that you don't have that ppa installed, and I'm not sure
if it is available via ppa on Karmic.
It's 404 because there is no karmic version in the PPA:

I doubt there will be either as karmic reaches EOL in April:

Try downloading and installing
from the - that works nicely.

That would be my recommendation as well.
