KOA.2A and KOA.1 Installation failed at "TASK [mysql : add the mysql signing key]"

Hi,

I am setting up KOA in new server. The installation stops at the following step:
TASK [mysql : add the mysql signing key] (see point A below), I have tried the same installation steps on KOA.2A and KOA.1, both stopped at the same step.

I did successfully install KOA.1 using the exactly same steps in Dec 2020, but it no longer worked from recent weeks. I believe the issue should not be from the installation script, it would be from MYSQL or Ubuntu side, please help !

A. Error found on 2020-04-01 (KOA.2A and KOA.1)

Hi @am2021, it looks like the keyserver is down or unreachable from the server on which you’re running this.

Perhaps you could try using a different keyserver? It’s defined with the MYSQL_APT_KEYSERVER ansible var.

Hi,

This issue if fixed now by retry, many thanks!
