Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to get NETFLIX setup on my computer, but when I type in the first command everyone says I need to do, this is what happens:

emile@ManCave:~$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:pipelight/stable  
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:pipelight/stable'.  
Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.

Any ideas on why that would be coming up?

before adding repository have you tried. "sudo apt-get update" –  RCF-U14.04 Jun 15 at 3:56
    
ppa looks correct –  RCF-U14.04 Jun 15 at 3:57
    
Is it ppa:pipelight/stable or ppa:mqchael/pipelight-daily? –  user224082 Jun 15 at 5:04

Your formatting is correct, it's the server that's having the problem. This is not the only PPA affected right now, as I just answered another question that is having the same problem: Issue adding ppa's

I would suggest trying again later, or perhaps tomorrow.
