Notice that Marielle (correctly) wrote

       gpg --export --armor E2A11821 | sudo apt-key add -

whereas you used

       gpg --export --armor E2A11821 | sudo apt-key add-
       

and the space matters. You tell apt-get to use a command 'add-' which doesn't exist whereas you need to tell it to use 'add' with '-' as input (meaning the key will be read on stdin).

In the future, consider the r-sig-debian list for Debian / Ubuntu questions. We are now fairly off-topic for R.
