Reading the last line: "Launchpad PPA for Daniel Richter" not changed gpg: Total number processed: 1 GPG: unchanged: 1

It looks like the ppa is already enabled. Try this:

cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/danielrichter2007-grub-customizer-precise.list

I have this same ppa enabled and the output should be this:

[email protected]:~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/danielrichter2007-grub-customizer-precise.list
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/danielrichter2007/grub-customizer/ubuntu precise main #Grub Customizer PPA

Good luck!
