gpg: keyserver timed out



  • I am trying to upgrade from 2.x to 3.0 but at the first command I get this error:

    [email protected]:~$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 76634F92039C47F3
    Executing: /tmp/tmp.kpCfrNmmJ7/gpg.1.sh --keyserver
    keys.gnupg.net
    --recv-keys
    76634F92039C47F3
    gpg: requesting key 039C47F3 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
    
    
    gpg: keyserver timed out
    gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error
    

    How can I solve this issue?



  • Sounds like your firewall might be blocking 11371 or something.

    Can you try below command instead to get the public key

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net:80 --recv-keys 76634F92039C47F3

    Btw I had replied to your email already, please check if it went to SPAM



  • Worked perfectly with

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net:80 --recv-keys 76634F92039C47F3
    

    I have checked the SPAM Appliance and did not get any mails from you 🙂



  • Hi, I have the next error:

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net:80 --recv-keys 76634F92039C47F3
    Executing: /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.E5n5BZuoo5/gpg.1.sh --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net:80 --recv-keys 76634F92039C47F3
    gpg: keyserver receive failed: No data

    Can you help me please?



  • Could you please try it a couple of times? The keyservers are busy at times and won't respond
