This is because Picasa is no longer distributed for Linux. Complain to google about that :-(

Alternatively, you can install Picasa for Windows using Wine. You can find instructions for example here. I don't mean the first answer (which tells you to use ubuntu repositories that are no longer available), but the one with the title "To install Picasa 3.9" further down the page.
