Can somebody help me?

Hello. My experience with those PPA repositories is that they can have transient downtime, sometimes for a day or more. So, it’s unlikely anything you can control or fix – be patient and try again later…

Good morning,
for my part impossible to install mailinabox, I get the same error.
I manually installed Duplicity, but still the same problem.
Can we work around the problem?
