** Description changed:

  This is common in an environment where a proxy server is not properly
  configured via HTTP_PROXY or HTTPS_PROXY and you need to add a PPA.
  
  The error is very cryptic unless you look at the code:
  
  sudo add-apt-repository ppa:anonymous/very-important-packages
  Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~anonymous/ubuntu/very-important-packages'.
  ERROR: '~anonymous' user or team does not exist.
