The term "PPA" is a Ubuntu-originated term, and is therefore not Debian.
Using actual PPAs from Ubuntu on a Debian system may be positively
harmful. What you probably mean is that you enabled the
"jessie-backports" archive.

The version you want is currently available in Stretch, which is the
requirement for a backport to be updated. I don't know who uploaded
kicad to backports, but it's possible that this person (who should be
reading the -backports mailinglist which I added to Cc of this mail)
might want to update it to the version in Stretch?

Failing that, you might consider upgrading to Debian Stretch. While that
has not released yet, it may be a good option for a personal home
desktop; using Debian Stretch is certainly a supported configuration,
and it does contain the version of kicad that you're looking for.

       people in the world who think they really understand all of its rules,
       and pretty much all of them are just lying to themselves too.
