comment What is the best config file for kernel compilation
Have a read of help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile and wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeam/GitKernelBuild - both mention using oldconfig, but I'm sure someone will be along soon to confirm (I don't have any experience of building kernels).

No its not default, adding PPAs changes your sources list. You have added PPAs that do not have any packages for the version of Ubuntu you have installed.
