Hi,

I'm a new Gnu/Linux user. I've installed Gentoo many times in the last months (unfortunately, incorrectly). Now, I've learned more by reading a few books and i found interesting docs* and good links, references, in the Gentoo Wiki (a few months ago, I couldn't understand useful documents). So, at that time i couldn't manage a functionnal operating system. I've decided to reinstall Gentoo. When I'm trying to fetch** the key during the install process I get error messages.

Code:
gpg : requesting key 2D182910 from hkp server hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
gpg : keyserver timed out
gpg : keyserver receive failed : keyserver error


This seems to be similar to error messages in his post https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1012664-highlight-keyserver+error.html

and maybe that refers to the following bug report --> https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=538852

Unfortunately, I don't understand how to get over the problem. Could someone help me ?

goodbye,

Maybe the server is really obsolete ? Try this in gpg.conf:
Code:
keyserver  pgp.mit.edu
keyserver-options timeout=60

neoptslap ... to add to what toralf suggest above, you can also provide a keyserver on the command line (though I'm not sure where exactly you're getting this error as I didn't read the provided link).

Code:
# gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 2D182910 || gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 2D182910

Also worth asking, you are online, and can resolve addresses, prior to the above error?

HTH & best ... khay

Good evening, toraf !

Thank you for your help !

I use the config file but the problem continues. I have the same error messages.

Code:
gpg --recv-keys 0x9E6438C817072058
gpg: requesting key 17072058 from hkp server pgp.mit.edu
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed : keyserver error


I think I'm gonna to read the Gentoo Wiki about GnuPG, the official documentation and the manual page* to learn a little more about using and configuring GnuPG.

* I didn't find the manual page about GnuPG, I know now that I have to search gpg !

Best regards,

neoptslap

You didn't block the IP port ? :
Code:
$ grep -i hkp /etc/services
hkp             11371/tcp                       # OpenPGP HTTP Keyserver
hkp             11371/udp

Hello !

Thank you Khayyam for your answer. Yes, I can resolve adresses but indeed the problem came from the internet transmissions (some parameters in the firewall protection).

Code:
root@sysresccd /root % ping -c 3 hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
PING hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net (192.146.137.11) 56(84) bytes of data.

64 bytes from pgpkeys.co.uk (192.146.137.11): icmp_seq=2 ttl=51 time=44.2 ms
64 bytes from pgpkeys.co.uk (192.146.137.11): icmp_seq=3 ttl=51 time=44.0 ms

root@sysresccd /root % gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys 2D182910 || gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --recv-keys 2D182910
gpg: requesting key 2D182910 from hkp server keys.gnupg.net
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Keyserver error
gpg: requesting key 2D182910 from hkp server pgp.mit.edu
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Keyserver error


toralf, indeed, the problem came from the IP ports. In my Internet Service Provider 's router, in the advanced configuration, I have to chose one level of security or configure the settings myself. So, I chose the high level of security. I change for the medium level of security and It's run.

Code:
root@sysresccd /root % gpg --keyserver hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-keys 0x9E6438C817072058
gpg: requesting key 17072058 from hkp server hkps.pool.sks-keyservers.net
gpg: /root/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
gpg: key 17072058: public key "Gentoo Linux Release Engineering (Gentoo Linux Release Signing Key) <releng@gentoo.org>" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1


Note : the command below, in my case, doesn't indicate change in the firewall's configuration of the Internet Service Provider's router

Code:
root@sysresccd /root % grep -i hkp /etc/services 
hkp      11371/tcp         # OpenPGP HTTP Keyserver
hkp      11371/udp



Thank you !

Best regards,

Hello everyone,

After trying the steps from here and here

I am still encountering the following error while trying to validate my download.

gpg --keyserver subkeys.pgp.net --recv-keys 0xBB572E0E2D182910
gpg: requesting key 2D182910 from hkp server subkeys.pgp.net
gpg: keyserver timed out
gpg: keyserver receive failed: keyserver error


Any ideas on how to solve this?


Kind Regards,
Cornelius
