The flow:

echo 'deb http://linux.dell.com/repo/community/deb/latest /' | sudo tee -a etc/apt/sources.list.d/linux.dell.com.sources.list

gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 1285491434D8786F

gpg -a --export 1285491434D8786F | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install -y srvadmin-all sblim-cmpi-base rpm alien

sudo ln -sf /usr/bin/rpm /bin/rpm

!Logof and Logon!

DSET binaries can be found here: http://support.dell.com/dset/
 You then need to edit the bin file to not run the install.sh file and to also not delete /tmp/dell_advdiags when it is finished running. You'll need the rpm files that it extracts to install DSET on Ubuntu.

#rm -rf $TMPDIR

Now the setup itself:
sudo su -
ln -sf /bin/bash /bin/sh
sh dell-dset*.bin
mv /tmp/dell_advdiags ~
cd ~/dell_advdiags/rpms
alien --scripts dell-dset*.rpm
dpkg -i --force all *.deb
