Question / Help Trouble when adding ppa obsproject


New Member
Hi, i'm French, so excuse me for my poor english level :o

I'm a beginner with Ubuntu.

I have a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS on a laptop HP (probook 4530s, core i5 2430, SSD, 8Go)

When i try to add PPA in the console, nothing happens... no return.... i must interrupt manually (Ctrl+C)

here's what i see in the console, when it's interrupted

I don't think it comes from OBS, but if someone can help me, it would be great :

Bests regards
