Public ubuntu PPA address gives 403

Component: (none-specified) Keywords:


The Haskell Platform Linux install page here ( directs users to add-apt-repository ppa:justinbogner/haskell-platform in order to install via the usual apt-get mechanisms. However, at least on Lucid, this doesn't work: trying to do an apt-get update shows a permissions problem:

W: Failed to fetch  403  Forbidden

It'd be nice if the publicly provided URL were publicly accessible. ;)

Hmm, this is weird. It turns out that I can wget the file just fine, but apt-get still complains. I'm suspecting this is actually specific to my system -- I'll close as worksforme, but if someone else runs into this and figures out what was going on, I'd be curious.
