How to solve add-apt-repository command not found error on Ubuntu 16.04

To solve the add-apt-repository command not found error the first thing we need to do is to download the following packages.

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties software-properties-common

When done installing, copy the next command

sudo apt-get install apt-file

Now we need to update apt-file. This will take sometime to update. I suggest that you grab a coffee while at it.

sudo apt-file update

After it has been updated you can add the repository using add-apt-repository command.
