So bzr+ssh (which is what lp: uses by default) requires your SSH key to
be registered with Launchpad. I bet what's happening is that

    a) You are on a different machine
    b) with its own SSH key
    c) that key is not associated to your account in Launchpad

If not, then I'd ask whether or not you have privs to write to the trunk
branch for datahub.
