While installing rvm I get the following error. What can I do?

Warning, RVM 1.26.0 introduces signed releases and automated check of signatures when GPG software found.
Assuming you trust Michal Papis import the mpapis public key (downloading the signatures).

GPG signature verification failed for '/home/jsr/.rvm/archives/rvm-1.26.10.tgz' - 'https://github.com/wayneeseguin/rvm/releases/download/1.26.10/1.26.10.tar.gz.asc'!
try downloading the signatures:

    gpg2 --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 409B6B1796C275462A1703113804BB82D39DC0E3

or if it fails:

    command curl -sSL https://rvm.io/mpapis.asc | gpg2 --import -

the key can be compared with:
