I found out that there is a change going on at Yahoo. So the original server setting in Kopete is not correct anymore. I connect to a server in China now, and everything is working ok. So not a problem in Kopete.

I did download the latest version with Synaptic.

Made a mistake. Pidgin I mean. I tried Kopete too.

This may be a duplicate of bug #389322. Yahoo! has been changing their protocol which broke compatibility with Pidgin. Ubuntu only provides security updates for a released version in a particular distribution release. A new version of Pidgin won't be provided until the next Ubuntu distribution release. Try using the new Pidgin version from the developers:

If you have trouble getting the key (keyserver times out), click the "Does this bug affect you?" link at the top of the report for bug #435193 then select "Yes" and try again later.
