This is the truth, but a working ppa is better than nothing...
Unfortunately there is a big problem (and partially my fault):

the latest boinc officially stable is the .28 release, while the .34 is
only for testing purposes.

So ubuntu MOTU's could not easily (especially for a LTS release) update boinc, since they cannot update it with an unstable release.
The .34 in my opinion is really a good release, and it should become a stable one (I have to report my testcases on boinc alpha site), but we cannot ask for a SRU if we have no fix for an high importance bug or an updated version in debian (now debian is at .27 too).

So in the meanwhile I suggest to use my ppa [1] if you want to "test"
always the latest *unstable* release (I can release more than a version
each day and no versions at all for weeks) or maybe use [2] if you want
a more stable release

there is a version released in [3] wich is the more stable one, but eg
it's still at .27 for now, I don't know when Daniel will update it.

Sorry for not giving an appropriate explanation, but for now this is the best we can do, maybe one day I'll apply for bug control and I'll have a closer connection with the MOTU's but now I really have no time to apply.
