This question already has an answer here:
I built a Ubuntu minimal installation (32-bit) to a VirtualBox Machine. Everything worked without a hitch, and the first things I installed were
lxqt, including dependencies. It booted up fine, and I thought it was working well, until I tried to add a new repository in the terminal.
Here's the command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
Once I hit enter, I am immediately met with this error:
sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found
I've also tried this command:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kdenlive/kdenlive-stable
with the same result. Running
sudo apt-get install firefox installs Firefox with no problems; it's adding new repositories that causes the issue.
Aside from installing a few programs via synaptic, I have done nothing to the system. I have not un-installed anything.
Does anyone know what is going wrong?
