Cannot add PPA: ‘ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair’

Often, when trying to reapair Windows MBR or even modify the boot order on a Ubuntu and Windows dual boot system, it is recommended to use the package “boot-repair”.

the first step in this process is adding the repository: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair

However, many people end up getting an error stating that the repository doesn’t exist: “”

Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:~yannubuntu/ubuntu/boot-repair'.
ERROR: '~yannubuntu' user or team does not exist.

How can you repair Grub if yannubuntu doesn’t exist?

Because this operation is generally recommended to be done on a live USB or disk version of the OS it is very common to forget to connect to the wifi.

If you are experiencing ” ~yannubuntu’ user or team does not exist. ” or “Cannot add PPA: ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair”, I suggest you make sure you are on the internet first!
