2008 Subaru Outback won't start

I have a 2008 manual transmission Subaru Outback with about 100,000 miles on it. Recently purchased it from a private buyer and it ran and drove fine. I have owned it for less than a week, but when I tried to start it today, nothing happened. No click with the ignition, no lights within the car, and no response with the gas. I attempted to jump the battery with a Ram 1500 but got zero response. It's been a while since I started a car, so initially I connected the black end of the jump wire to the batter (bad idea) and had the car alarm go off on the Subaru. Realized my mistake and subsequently grounded the black wire, with no result. Any ideas as to what went wrong?
