Try the following

Pip install python-swiftclient

Sudo it if your not root

If you don't have Pip do apt-get install python-setuptools first.

Could you run:

# apt-get update

And if "apt-get install python-swiftclient" still fails, post your
/etc/apt/sources.list ?

I'm note sure that python-swiftclient comes with the Swift-core PPA
(https://launchpad.net/~swift-core/+archive/release) but it should be
available through pip

Hope this helps,
