The link for bluez 5.43 is dead.

You should replace :
wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/b/bluez/bluez_5.43-1_amd64.deb

by :
wget http://security.debian.org/debian-security/pool/updates/main/b/bluez/bluez_5.43-2+deb9u1_amd64.de

and then of course replace :
sudo dpkg -i bluez_5.43-1_amd64.deb

by :
sudo dpkg -i bluez_5.43-2+deb9u1_amd64.deb

Thanks a lot for this gist !!
Worked for me.
