specifically says

Freeradius 3.x configuration files are incompatible with 2.x. If you
have old 2.x packages installed, remove them first (e.g. BACKUP
/etc/freeradius somewhere safe, THEN run "apt-get purge libfreeradius2
freeradius-common; rm -rf /etc/freeradius")

Note "purge". That would ensure all config files from previous
versions are removed. Your best bet right now would probably be to
purge all freeradius-related packages (both v2 and v3), remove
/etc/freeradius (just to be safe. You DO have backup of the previous
config?), and then reinstall FR-3 packages.

Also, how are you using the ppa? If you use "add-apt-repository
ppa:freeradius/stable-3.0" and "apt-get update", there should be no
"WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated" message.
