Trying to install tor through this websites guide. Working well, until I reach a SIGNATURE VERIFICATION FAILED error. They said to run this command to fix the key:

gpg --homedir "$HOME/.local/share/torbrowser/gnupg_homedir" --refresh-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com

Which falls into a gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found error. I tried this stackoverflow, but it contains a variety of nonspecific answers, all either concerning wget or curl. A similar issue was discussed here, but the answer was this command, which is where I'm having trouble. I deleted and reset my .gnupg folder, but I still hit the same error for some reason. Any ideas?


The linked answer of the "similar issue" actually features a slightly different command: It ends with the key server pgp.mit.edu, not with keyserver.ubuntu.com.

For me, it worked with this MIT key server.
