I am trying to install ros-kinetic-gazebo-ros-control package using the command

sudo apt-get install ros-kinetic-gazebo-ros-control

However while doing so I get the error message that I have pasted below. I did sudo apt-get update but the same error persists. Any help in resolving the issue is appreciated.

This has been asked a lot recently. Please see #q325039 for the solution.

If you want the gory details, see this Discourse topic.

ROS has revoked the Old Key due to some security issues and has given the new key.

Kindly follow the link shared by Geoff.

Remove the old key and add the new one and do an update and upgrade.

It should work.

@Geoff: as this is essentially a duplicate of #q325039, it might be an idea to close future questions like this.

I'll update #q325039 to include the error message the OP posted.

@Geoff I followed the link and subsequent instructions there but still having the same issue. Any idea why the error persists?

@anirban: what is the output of sudo apt update now?

@gvdhoorn I had to reboot the system and now can install packages. Thank you for the help.

@gvdhoorn Sounds like a good idea; I expect we will see a few of these for a while.
