I solved this issue following these steps, working into the console in front of a local machine:

- if not yet happen create an SSH key (ssh-keygen -t rsa, without password, press ENTER several times), for root or for the local account running broctl
- copy or add the public key (~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub) to ~/.ssh/authorized_keys

then, important:
- open SSH connections to your local machine:

		ssh localhost
and 		ssh ::1

You shouldn’t get a password request due to authorized_keys. Important because without both (IPv4 and IPv6) connections I couldn’t solve the problem. Maybe it depends on the entry in known_hosts?

Now broctl -> install or broctl ->  deploy should work.

Good luck.
