Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:ondrej/php5-5.6'

I'm trying to update my php 5.5.9 to 5.6 in an Ubuntu machine.

But when I run:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5-5.6

I'm getting:

Cannot add PPA: 'ppa:ondrej/php5-5.6'.
Please check that the PPA name or format is correct.

How can I fix this?


I ran:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php5

But when I run:

php5 -v

I still get php 5.5.9:

PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.20 (cli) (built: Oct 3 2016 13:00:37)
