When I run the command

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp

It hangs after it asks for my password for a long time then shows this

Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:linrunner/tlp'.
Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.

I know the format is correct, I don't know what is wrong. I am not behind a proxy or any other internet blocking firewalls.

I've tried both:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp sudo apt-get update

and

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp sudo apt-get update

and I too get the error:

Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:linrunner/tlp'. Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.

I believe this is because the server is having connectivity issues as when I try to visit the launchpad page https://launchpad.net/~linrunner/+archive/tlp in Firefox I get an error too:


Please try again

Sorry, there was a problem connecting to the Launchpad server.

Try reloading this page in a minute or two. If the problem persists, let us know in the #launchpad IRC channel on freenode.

Thanks for your patience.

My suggestion would be to try again later, or tomorrow.

The launchpad server is down at the moment. Try again a little later.
