I just ran the same one-liner command, and I do see the same key ID printed and yet the installation passed that point in question. So I assume either something has been fixed since OP's post, or it was just a temporary glitch.

As far as I know, we (Open Robotics) did not change anything internally for many months related to the Gazebo key. gpg keyserver problems are usually temporal problems in the server side.
