You are apparently running Ubuntu 13.04 (Raring).

The TexLive Backports PPA is intended to be used by Ubuntu 12.04 users as it contains backported TexLive packages from Ubuntu 12.10 to 12.04.

The packages you want can be installed without adding any PPA.

also when installing with apt-get, biblatex will be out of date – NoClueLu Oct 16 '13 at 15:52
Then you have to download TeXLive from the official website: – errikos Oct 16 '13 at 16:19
