It is looking for version >= 1.11, which you do not have.

It also appears to be looking in the default directory for self compiled
software (/usr/local/bin). I would recommend compiling the necessary
libraries/binaries of the correct version from source as well since it
looks like the repository does not provide them, which would make sense
since the repository version does not require a newer version. If you're
going to compile software from source, be prepared for headaches like
this. This isn't really a GPG issue, but just the fact that Ubuntu has
not brought the newer versions into their repositories yet.

I've never looked into maintaining a repository myself, but it does seem
like it would be a quite a bit of work (maintaining the server,
compiling and packaging the software, etc.) especially for software that
has a one man development team.
