[~invalid/ubuntu/ppa] hostapd-conf_1.1-2_amd64.changes (Rejected)


Hello, I am trying to get some help updating a PPA. I got an email saying "
Launchpad failed to process the upload path

Could not find a PPA owned by 'gateworks-software' for 'ubuntu' named

It is likely that you have a configuration problem with dput/dupload.

hostapd-conf (1.1-2) focal; urgency=medium

  #1036: hostapd-conf 802.11ax (wifi6) support needed


Which doesn't make sense to me that launchpad could not find a PPA owned by
'gateworks-software' for 'ubuntu' named 'hostapd-conf' when that is exactly
where i sourced it from. Here is my commands that all indicate they
executed successfully (I am on ubuntu jammy):
$sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gateworks-software/packages

$sudo apt update

$sudo apt-get install hostapd-conf

$apt-get source hostapd-conf=1.1-1

$cd hostapd-conf-1.1/

$vim hostapd-conf # make necessary changes to source code

$vim debian/changelog # update version and message summary of changes

$ debuild -b

$dput ppa:gateworks-software/hostapd-conf

So in summary I suppose I am confused on why I am able to download the
source, make the changes I want, and seemingly upload it to launchpad via
dput.. Only to get a rejected letter from Launchpad saying it cant find
that PPA? Any help would be appreciated and I thank you for your time. I am
new to working with launchpad so i appreciate any patience required on your
