The ppa you added has no builds for xenial, and is severely out of date. I suggest removing it, and when in doubt asking for advice when installing any ppa. They can cause more harm then good.

Use the manual in your install to find out how. Example on mine.

See the button for Edit Software Sources. It is pretty self explanitory. Use your manual to avoid any confusion.
