New 22.04 install keyring problems and solution

Long time happy user here. I recently had occasion to add a new Syncthing Ubuntu 22.04.3 client, so I followed the steps here:

But adding the key failed with a permission error:

$ sudo curl -L -o /etc/apt/keyrings/syncthing-archive-keyring.gpg


Warning: Failed to open the file Warning: /etc/apt/keyrings/syncthing-archive-keyring.gpg: Permission denied 100 1769 100 1769 0 0 4125 0 --:–:-- --:–:-- --:–:-- 4123 curl: (23) Failure writing output to destination

I got around it by issuing these commands separately:

$ sudo wget

/etc/apt/keyrings$ sudo mv release-key.gpg syncthing-archive-keyring.gpg
