    You need to ask a question first! Give us some context - hardware, Ubuntu version, how you ended up with that error message.

--keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net

SKS keyservers are deprecated and most of them are going offline. As such you will not be able to retrieve keys from them.

Instead you should use --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com.

No name This may be a server issue.

There is a notice dated 2021-06-21 on sks-keyservers.net stating "Due to even more GDPR takedown requests, the DNS records for the pool will no longer be provided at all."

    still not working Commented Oct 31, 2021 at 23:06
  • @justusgeorge it won't work because the install.sh script you're using was written to use the sks keyserver pool which no longer works. Commented Nov 5, 2021 at 5:54
  • Thanks. FInally I solved the issue by following command - sudo gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3 7D2BAF1CF37B13E2069D6956105BD0E739499BDB
