I'm following my own article: Making a Wireless Hotspot

When I put in

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd

I get the message

Cannot access PPA (https://launchpad.net/api/1.0/~nilarimogard/+archive/webupd) to get PPA information, please check your internet connection.

I use Cylon Linux, which uses the updates from Ubuntu 12.04, basically. I'm using Ethernet.

After doing it and responding to an answer, I get

Address already in use
                                                                         [fail]
invoke-rc.d: initscript dnsmasq, action "start" failed.

According to a quick Google Search the correct PPA should be:

ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

instead of

ppa:nilarimogard/webupd
