Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better.

Bug reporting is about finding & fixing problems thus preventing future users from hitting the same bug.

I suspect a Support site would be more appropriate, eg. https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu. You can also find help with your problem in the support forum of your local Ubuntu community http://loco.ubuntu.com/ or asking at https://askubuntu.com or https://ubuntuforums.org, or for more support options please look at https://discourse.ubuntu.com/t/community-support/709

You've filed this as a bug against Ubuntu, where its a 3rd party PPA you appear to be having trouble with, but no specific OS/release details were provided (bug report filed online rather than on the impacted machine so details were not provided).

To file issues against PPAs, you should report to the owner of that PPA.

If you're filing against the actual add-apt-repository command, that is found in the package software-properties-common, and the bug report should have been filed using

ubuntu-bug software-properties-common

The correct command is

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apt-fast/stable

(without /ppa at the end)
