Hi Guix Users!

I am sorry to come again with a problem in such a short time.

At work I set up a machine and wanted to install Guix package manager
there as well. The following is what happened:

user@user-ThinkPad-T470s:~/Downloads$ sudo bash 
(big guix logo here)

This script installs GNU Guix on your system
Press return to continue...
[1593609766.770]: Starting installation (Mi 1. Jul 15:22:46 CEST 2020)
[1593609766.771]: [ PASS ] verification of required commands completed
[1593609766.774]: [ FAIL ] Missing OpenPGP public key.  Fetch it with this 
  wget -qO - | gpg --import 

OK, I thought, then I'll do that. I tried multiple times and this is the
latest output of the key adding:

user@user-ThinkPad-T470s:~/Downloads$ wget -qO - | gpg --import -
gpg: key 090B11993D9AEBB5: 129 signatures not checked due to missing keys
gpg: key 090B11993D9AEBB5: "Ludovic Courtès <>" not changed
gpg: key 090B11993D9AEBB5: "Ludovic Courtès <>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 2
gpg:              unchanged: 2

So the key is definitely there now. However, the original error message
of the installer persists.

I think there might be some issue with the keys. It could also be the
newly installed Xubuntu 20.04 LTS on that machine, but I have no idea,
why or how it would cause such a problem.

Is this a known problem and do you know a solution to this?

I could provide more detail, if I knew where to look or what to do to debug.
