    Can't add any ppa in 13.04

    Hello uforums!!

    I've made a clean install of 13.04 and just can't add any ppa I try. The output is always the same, something about my internet connection (that works fine with anything else). Heres an example (sorry my instalation is in portuguese)

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio 
    [sudo] password for andre: 
    Não foi possível obter informações do PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~ehoover/+archive/compholio), por favor verifique sua conexão com a internet.
    andre@sapienz:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:cooperjona/lightread
    Não foi possível obter informações do PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~cooperjona/+archive/lightread), por favor verifique sua conexão com a internet.
    A possible translation would be "It was not possible to obtain information from the PPA, please verify you internet connection."

    I don't know what could be doing this, and I really need to install some apps like netflix and lightread to make this installation worthy. Thank you

    I looks like there is a 13.04 package for the first ppa so you may want to try changing servers in Software & Updates.

    When I do:
    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ehoover/compholio
    I get:

    https://launchpad.net/~ehoover/+archive/compholio

    And you get directed to:

    https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~ehoov...hive/compholio

    A bad source. Don't know why that is.

    Same problem...
    Maybe it's a bug in the 13.04 Portuguese version.

    I have a similar problem, but my ubuntu updates are working fine i think, as i can install packages without problems and apt-get update gives no errors, but when i

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager
    or any other PPA i get

    Code:
    erik_ubuntu@Erik-MacBookAir:~$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/y-ppa-manager
    Cannot access PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~webupd8team/+archive/y-ppa-manager) to get PPA information, please check your internet connection.
    As i´m able to post this, my internet is working fine and i´m on ubuntu 13.04
