I installed my VPS with Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit and I even checked with

cat /etc/lsb-release

and I got

DISTRIB_ID=Ubuntu
DISTRIB_RELEASE=10.04
DISTRIB_CODENAME=lucid
DISTRIB_DESCRIPTION="Ubuntu 10.04.1 LTS"

However, I'm getting add-apt-repository: command not found error while I try to install JVM. Any idea?

add-apt-repository isn't installed by default. You have to install the python-software-properties package first.

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
