I have added my package as a ppa successfully (it says Successfully uploaded packages with the command dput ppa:user/my_package my_package_0.3-1_source.changes).

However, It says that the signing key does not exist when I add my ppa with add-aptand after pressing[ ENTER ]`:

  # add-apt-repository ppa:my_user/my_package
  More info: https://launchpad.net/~user3514/+archive/ubuntu/screen-generator
  Press [ENTER] to continue or ctrl-c to cancel adding it

   Error: signing key fingerprint does not exist

Output after uploading the package:

# dput ppa:user/my_package source.changes

PPA will create a new key(Launchpad PPA for YOUR NAME) for you and signed the related files with this new key.

You may need to wait for a while, to get this new key uploaded to Ubuntu Keyserver(keyserver.ubuntu.com).
