Hi I think you have a couple different issues going on here, and some of them might be related to your setup.

Regarding the apt-get flag-- I don't really do any installs on Linux so can you help explain what that flag does and why you needed to add it and what happened when you didn't add it? What do I need to do to fix whatever it is you're trying to report there?

Regarding the second error it would appear some part of Lucee is attempting to download stuff over the internet. Can you confirm if your machine has internet access? That said, I'm not aware that Lucee SHOULD be doing that, but I know it's an ongoing issue that Lucee often times tries to download things and there's nothing I can do to disable that feature. Perhaps your jars are corrupted and extensions are missing? I need a lot more info to guess what'a happening. Also, try adding the flag "-clidebug" to your binary on the first run to see if that shows any other information. Sadly, the lucee console logs aren't available to us in any form due to a Lucee bug I reported a very long time ago that I'm still waiting to be fixed, so you may need to check the internal Lucee logs inside the CommandBox home to look for clues.

OK, in the install script gpg first queries the keys.gnupg.net server for a key associated with 6DA70622 which I've verified is there. but then I get the error `The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 7D32E5396DA70622

You're not showing me the actual commands you're running to install so it's hard for me to guess what you're doing there but it would appear you are using an old version of the install commands. We haven't used the keys.gnupg.net server in a while now. Can you confirm that you're using the latest documented install process here:

OK when I go to the key server and look up your keys and click the digest (6DA70622) to see the details of the key, it throws me to MATOMO, one of those web analytics sales sites...
I'm trying to work out a script that will end up as part of a Chef/Vagrant install so I can spin up a VM with Commandbox to do devops on.

Sorry, but I'm still clueless about what you're trying to do here. What details do you need about the key? Forget the keys.gnupg.ne server. It's dead. Gone. Last week. Forgetta' 'bout it! Everything you need is in the docs and we have the key hosted on our S3 bucket. You should be able to use the script I pointed you to in the docs. What issue are you having when just copy/pasting that sucker and running it?
