These two steps can be accomplished with a single APT URL, e.g.:
<a href="apt:pkg?refresh=yep">install pkg</a>
which will refresh and install request package(s). Ubuntu's software
centre is the default handler for apt: urls, and I believe there are
other software packages also provide similar functionality.
I don't believe there is an apt-url scheme to add a repository with a
GPG key, but it would be very cool. Or, e.g. for apt repositories to
become discoverable in general similar to how e.g. coreos/rkt URL
discovery works to find containers and their gpg signatures derived
from simple urls.
