I just get a new Ubuntu virtual machine (14.04) from Here
and one of the first things I tried to do was to install the JDK 8, starting to add the PPA repo:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:webupd8team/java
It seems a simple Thing but it turne in a nightmare. I got all the time the error:
Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~webupd8team/ubuntu/java'. ERROR: '~webupd8team' user or team does not exist
This is an incorrect error, I manage to track the source of it, which is:
and added a print in the expeption
print("the Error:" + str(e) + " " + str(lp_url))
what help to understand a bit better the issue. Now the error includes:
the Error:<urlopen error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:645)> https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~webupd8team
My question is: How can I ignore the SSL certificate or how can I bypass it? I am lost here, no idea why I can't add any ppa repo.
Firefox also compains about SSL certificates, but once I add it (then I can proceed and see the page content)
Note: Internet connections works well, and I do not have any proxy.
