When I try to run launchpad-getkeys, I get HTTP Error 7:
But this does work:
gpg: requesting key BB901940 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
?: keyserver.ubuntu.com: Host not found
gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 7: couldn't connect: Success
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
gpg: Total number processed: 0
Here 126.96.36.199 is the IP address of keyserver.ubuntu.com.
root@Lenovo-Z580:/etc/apt# launchpad-getkeys -k 188.8.131.52:80
Please wait... launchpad-getkeys is running an update so
it can detect the missing GPG keys
Trying to import all the missing keys
gpg: requesting key BB901940 from hkp server 184.108.40.206
gpg: key BB901940: public key "Launchpad Daily Build" imported
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg: imported: 1 (RSA: 1)
Of course, this shouldn't be necessary. The problem seems to lie in how launchpad-ketkeys resolves the URL of its keyserver. BUG!!!
