Your Linux kernal is out of date. You have 3.5.0-23-generic x86_64, I have 3.5.0-27-generic x86_64
Have you ran:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
and (only run thjs if the last two did nothing) sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
in a terminal?

I can install that package fine.

Also, if you want help in getting your wireless to work then you should probably Ask Ubuntu: www.askubuntu.com

the upgrade command is still doing it's job will surely share the result once the upgrade is over.

Thanks for replying :)
