Thanks for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but this appears to be a "regular" (non-security) bug. I have unmarked it as a security issue since this bug does not show evidence of allowing attackers to cross privilege boundaries nor directly cause loss of data/privacy. Please feel free to report any other bugs you may find.

Looks like there is file conflict between the pre-installed packages bt-dw1705-firmware and linux-firmware. As the linux-firmware package now contains the necessary file, you can remove the bt-dw1705-firmware package from Ubuntu Software Center or by the command 'sudo apt-get remove bt-dw1705-firmware' on the command line.
