From the official Pidgin web site

To setup the PPA, follow these steps: 
1. Click to download the Pidgin PPA package.
2. Select Open with: and GDebi Package Installer. Click OK.
3. Click Install Package.
4. Click Close. Then close GDebi.

After doing this, check for and apply updates: 
1. Click System, point to Administration, and click Update Manager.
2. Click Check.
3. Click Install Updates.

That helped me, hope that will help you as well.

Give it a try.

These were instructions to update Pidgin to the latest PPA version but an updated Pidgin does not add IRC formatting functionality and the PPA is considered deprecated. – Deltik Aug 18 '15 at 11:53
