While downloading the packages to install this remote desktop assistant tool, the system has to confirm they are genuine without any alteration. And for that, we need to add a GPG key, hence just follow the below command:
curl -fSsL https://download.teamviewer.com/download/linux/signature/TeamViewer2017.asc | sudo gpg --dearmor | sudo tee /usr/share/keyrings/teamviewer.gpg > /dev/null
2. Add TeamViewer Repository on Debian 11 or 10
The installation packages we need to set up for this remote assistant tool are not in the base repo of Debian 10 or 11. Therefore, we have to manually add it using the below command:
echo "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/teamviewer.gpg] http://linux.teamviewer.com/deb stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/teamviewer.list

To make sure the system can recognize the latest added repository, run the system update command, once.
sudo apt update
