You may have either hit Launchpad.net during some downtime (in which case, just retry the command), or possibly you are behind a proxy and that is causing the add-apt-repository command to fail?

Hi Janson,

Looks like there are some suggestions on this issue here:

https://bugs.launchpad.net/software-properties/+bug/443404 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/software-p...)

Seems to be related to the fact that proxy settings aren't preserved when you run a command via sudo.

I had this issue too behind a proxy:

sudo su -

export http_proxy=http://PROXY-IP:80/

export https_proxy=http://PROXY-IP:80/

sed -i 's/"keyserver.ubuntu.com"/"hkp:\/\/keyserver.ubuntu.com:80"/' /usr/share/pyshared/softwareproperties/ppa.py

#add-apt-repository ppa:nova-core/release

did the trick for me
