How to fix sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found using sudo add-apt-repository ppa:some/ppa in Ubuntu Linux Systems.

If you get the error message “sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found” 
while adding sudo add-apt-repository ppa:some/ppa, here is what to do:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common

No run the respective command for adding the PPA in the traditional way.
Please note that for Ubuntu 13.10, Debian 7 and other older versions or its earlier
 versions, add-apt-repository command is available under python-software-properties
 package. So in this case ypu must use the following command to install it.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
