AMD dropped support for that GPU, so you can't use official drivers. I've heard of people having success with open source drivers, but unfortunately I don't know what people have had success with.

tl;dr
you can't use official drivers with that card, look up open sourced alternatives

According to this, the HD 3000 series is still covered by the legacy driver...

This is probably too late, but in general it is better to use your Linux distribution's tools for installing drivers (and other software).
In Ubuntu, you can switch the graphics driver through the "software & updates" dialog.

Apart from the things said here, have you actually tried updating your system like the error message said and then trying it again ?

I probably should have asked what distro he was using.
here you go my distro :) Ubuntu 12.04.2 LTS \n \l

Jockey (Additional Drivers) would be the best way to update your drivers then.
^Not for open source ones.
