Have you first applied all updates from the Update Manager, upper-right panel?

Yes all updates are installed.This seems to be recent problem i have installed ppas before no problem.


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:peterlevi/ppa
[sudo] password for andy:

raise NoSectionError(section)

I get the same thing with a different ppa.

Thank you very much for letting me know about this.

I was able to replicate the issue. I have fixed it and uploaded a new version of the package, uberstudentsources, into the UberStudent repository. Please run the Update Manager to install the new package version. You may need to click "Refresh" for the new package to show.

Kindly confirm for me that this solves the issue as expected per my testing of the package.
