I am following the installation guide for Debian Buster of ROS Noetic and in the second step, executing the comand sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key C1CF6E31E6BADE8868B172B4F42ED6FBAB17C654 I got the following error:

Executing: /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.nAyAX9Bj38/ --keyserver hkp:// --recv-key C1CF6E31E6BADE8868B172B4F42ED6FBAB17C654
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No name

I read that apt-key is deprecated or something like that. How can I continue the installation?

Best regards. Alessandro

Trying other ways to solve it, I finally solved it using the command:

curl -s | sudo apt-key add -

Then following the rest of the steps it works fine, but for example It is not available:

sudo apt install ros-noetic-desktop-full

Instead I have used:

sudo apt install ros-noetic-desktop

And it is installing.

Best regards. Alessandro
