Installing ppa

Hi All,

Debian Buster, AMD64, KDE Desktop.

I installed a ppa using the following code:

         sudo add-apt-repository ppa:elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa

This installed


in my /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d directory. So far so good.

But when I run apt-get update I get:

         E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa/ubuntu focal Release' does not have a Release file.
        N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
        N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.

If I added the -s switch to add-apt-repository ie sudo add-apt-repository -s ppa:elmer-csc-ubuntu/elmer-csc-ppa ,

I get :

        gpg: keybox '/tmp/tmpxocgqxov/pubring.gpg' created
    gpg: /tmp/tmpxocgqxov/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
    gpg: key 89358ABF9FB7E178: public key "Launchpad PPA for Elmer CSC ubuntu packaging" imported
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg:               imported: 1
    gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.

Apt-get update still errors out. I don't seem to have the gpg key installed. How do I fix this problem.
