DigitalOcean Agent key deprecation warning in Ubuntu 22.04 (Jammy)

On a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 (LTS) x64 droplet, running apt update && apt upgrade will produce the following warning:

W: Key is stored in legacy trusted.gpg keyring (/etc/apt/trusted.gpg), see the DEPRECATION section in apt-key(8) for details.

This is a warning, not an error, and it can be fixed manually, but it would be nice for it not to happen in the first place in Ubuntu 22.04+.

Hi there,

I have just tested this out and it seems to have worked as expected on a fresh new Ubuntu 22.04 Droplet:

wget -qO- | sudo bash
# Output:

Installing Droplet Agent, 1 attempt

Checking dependencies for installing droplet-agent
Importing GPG public key
Installing droplet-agent
DigitalOcean Droplet Agent is successfully installed

After that, the apt update and apt upgrade also work as expected.

Would you mind confirming how exactly did you install the agent?
