Hello all;

I am trying to install ROS indigo in a new system, but keyserver is down:

alberto@OptiPlex-9010:~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key 0xB01FA116
Executing: gpg --ignore-time-conflict --no-options --no-default-keyring --homedir /tmp/tmp.ryx941KSlA --no-auto-check-trustdb --trust-model always --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --primary-keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key 0xB01FA116
gpg: requesting key B01FA116 from hkp server
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error

Is there any possibility to set up keys manually and continue with installation? Thank you all in advance,

Have you tried just going ahead and installing (e.g. sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-desktop-full)? What errors do you get when attempting that?

The keyserver seems to be back up now. If it goes down again you can use this to get the key from github over an SSL connection.

wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
