The above, with the added quote, executed here of this wheezy install;

gene@coyote:/$ wget -O 
keyfile ''
Cannot specify both -k and -O if multiple URLs are given, or in 
with -p or -r. See the manual for details.

Usage: wget [OPTION]... [URL]...

And of course not even the empty keyfile is generated.

alias returns:
alias gen-password='head -c 21 /dev/urandom | base64 | head -c 26 && 
alias linuxcnc='xrdb -all -query|sed -e '\''s#[A-Z_]*BACKGROUND# 
gray90#'\'' -e '\''s#[A-Z_]*FOREGROUND# 
Black#'\''  -e '\''s#[A-Z_]*HIGHLIGHT# 
White#'\'' -e '\''s#[A-Z_]*LOWLIGHT# Black#'\''|xrdb -merge; linuxcnc'
alias ls='ls --color=auto'
alias nano='nano --smooth '

Now, just for S&G I ssh'd into an intel box on my locate network, AND IT 

Nothing there that should effect wget that I can see.  And the re-install 
of wget isn't enabled by synaptic. I just ran that line on one of my 
milling machines, and now have a keyfile, it worked so the wget on this 
machine is fubar.  So once I've done another install, I will see if I 
can get it copied back and installed here. However, I should point out 
that this is a 3rd copy of wget thats fubar since its the stretch 
version of apt-key that fails with the 'connection refused' error.

And its not wget, the sha1sums are the same on both machines. one works, 
the other doesn't. But both are wheezy

Is it 17:00 yet?
