I've been using Debian on a HP laptop, and noticed that to use Bluetooth or Wireless LAN, I had to hit a button above the keyboard first, which would change the color of an indicator symbol (a similar button as the sound volume controls). Only then the software could use that hardware as normal.

Not saying that's the case here, but maybe something similar is going on here? Also check if the relevant hardware is enabled in the BIOS.

And Google or check documentation on Ubuntu site - there's a lot of documentation & hints out there for Ubuntu.
