    I think that the package pidgin-ppa is made for Ubuntu but not for Debian.

    To remove the package open a terminal and load the post removal script file in an editor.
    Code:
    sudo leafpad /var/lib/dpkg/info/pidgin-ppa.postrm
    The idea is to mark the command line producing the error message as a comment.

    The post removal script has got a line "apt-key del ..." which I commented out.
    Code:
    !/bin/sh -e
    # vim: ai ts=4 sts=4 et sw=4
    
    if [ "$1" = "remove" ]; then
    #    apt-key del 67265EB522BDD6B1C69E66ED7FB8BEE0A1F196A8
        rm -f /etc/apt/sources.list.d/pidgin-ppa.list
    fi
    
    # Automatically added by dh_installinit
    if [ "$1" = "purge" ] ; then
            update-rc.d pidgin-ppa remove >/dev/null
    fi
    # End automatically added section
    # Automatically added by dh_installdebconf
    if [ "$1" = purge ] && [ -e /usr/share/debconf/confmodule ]; then
            . /usr/share/debconf/confmodule
            db_purge
    fi
    # End automatically added section
    Save the file and exit the editor.

    Issue the following commands in the terminal.
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -l pidgin-ppa
    sudo dpkg --purge pidgin-ppa
    sudo dpkg -l pidgin-ppa
    The last command should show that the package is not installed anymore.

    You can find a package of pidgin in the Debian testing (Wheezy) software repository.

    I hope that helps.
