I am running
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java in order to add the repository to install oracle jdk on my Ubuntu 18.4 machine. The command hangs and does not return. As far as I understand all this command does is to add the repository to the /etc/apt/sources.list file. Could the reason for the command hanging be that i am running this behind a proxy?
How can I resolve this issue?
