In general, don't 'sudo wget' or 'sudo curl' anything, one never knows. curl | sudo bash securely like a responsible person.

You're running the script as root, so you need to 'sudo gpg'

If that fixes your problem, I'll edit the script to include it.

Make sure to run wget … | sudo gpg …, don't put sudo before wget or you'll download the file as root and import the key as a normal user, which is useless :)
