Can't install ncurses5-compat-libs from AUR because of gpg key

Hi there all
I'm new to manjaro, and I've been trying to install bitnami LAMP stack on it, it said that it needs ncurses5-compat-libs, and tried to install it from AUR, it fails, because of a public key!!
I switched from ubuntu to manjaro, in ubuntu it worked fine.
I searched the forums for solutions but no hope.
also tried: gpg --recv-keys C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB
it results: gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

what is the problem ?? I really have no clue, I read about DNS or something like that, but I couldn't understand what is it exactly.
anybody can help plz

thnx

There's a pinned comment on the AUR page for a reason. :wink:

moved to #aur

I have tried it before posting this

$ gpg --recv-keys C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

I tried to read the articles pointed out in the pinned comment, but couldn't get much out of them.

why reading all this for just installing a package ?

Hi, how do I flag it ?

There are more comments, perhaps read this one.

I tried it before the same result

$ gpg --keyserver keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB
gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

even when I go to http://keys.gnupg.net and search for this key it shows me that "No results found: No keys found"

I think the key is dead or something

It seems to exist:

$ gpg --search-key C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB
gpg: data source: https://192.146.137.140:443
(1)	Thomas Dickey <dickey@invisible-island.net>
	  1024 bit DSA key 702353E0F7E48EDB, created: 2004-01-05

but why it doesn't work with me

$ gpg --search-key C52048C0C0748FEE227D47A2702353E0F7E48EDB
gpg: error searching keyserver: Server indicated a failure
gpg: keyserver search failed: Server indicated a failure

is it about DNS ? , I've read a solution that said to configure DNS through resolv.conf, but I have only two entries in it

# Generated by NetworkManager
nameserver fe80::1%wlp6s0
nameserver 192.168.1.1

Why would it be? Do you have DNS trouble in general?
/etc/resolv.conf won't hold all info if you're using systemd-resolved. Check

$ resolvectl
