I would guess that the wget command failed to download the key file, perhaps due to a network problem. Try doing it in two steps:

wget -O ros.key
sudo apt-key add ros.key

If there's a network problem, you should see it during the first step. If you continue to have trouble with wget, try downloading that URI from a web browser.

As far as I know, fuerte is not supported in quantal (12.10), we'll have to migrate drcsim to depend on groovy for this to work. We are currently testing ros functionalities for drcsim in groovy.
