    Having trouble adding pcsx2 PPA

    Whenever i try to add th pcxs2 ppa from terminal i get this.

    Code:
    wintermute32@wintermute32-Lenovo-B570:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gregory-hainut/pcsx2.official.ppa
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/add-apt-repository", line 88, in <module>
        ppa_info = get_ppa_info_from_lp(user, ppa_name)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/softwareproperties/ppa.py", line 83, in get_ppa_info_from_lp
        return json.loads(lp_page)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/__init__.py", line 326, in loads
        return _default_decoder.decode(s)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/decoder.py", line 366, in decode
        obj, end = self.raw_decode(s, idx=_w(s, 0).end())
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/json/decoder.py", line 384, in raw_decode
        raise ValueError("No JSON object could be decoded")
    ValueError: No JSON object could be decoded
    any suggestions on what to do or other packages i need to get for this to work?
