You have to diagnose it yourself first if it is a mechanical fault first. It can be a bit of dirt making the rebound mechanism sticky. In such a case you can gentlely remove the key button and give it a thorough clean.

If the Ubuntu isn't responding to the correct key then it may be a matter of selecting the correct keyboard in the desktop.
