Maybe the owner closed it. Have you tried contacting them:
https://launchpad.net/~debfx

Just a little note, the first Place in PPA stands for "personal". The packages are for use by the maintainer. The fact that Launchpad.net also makes them publicly available is just an extra niceness but the packages are built as the maintainer desires and you have no way of knowing what is in their packages

Virtualbox is in the default repositories. Virtualbox also has its own package source. Why you would want to use packages by Dave Somebody on the Internet is weird.

You're right. I added the Virutalbox source from their website.
