that's because cmdline command interface is stricter when it comes to 
e.g. it tries hard to verify gpg-signatures (something the cmdline 
interface doesn't even attempt to do).
you can ignore missing GPG signatures with the "--ignore-missing-gpg" 
cmdline flag.

the 'deken' cmdline utility has plenty of flags to tune its behaviour, 
which you can query with "--help".
also note that each subcommand has their own flags, so you might try 
something like:
deken install --help


PS: i just tried to actually reproduce your error, and even without 
specifying the "--ignore-missing-gpg" it downloads and installs the 
files just fine, even though it cannot download the .asc signature. are 
you sure that the installation is failing, or are you just seeing a 
"failed" string and concluding that things are going wrong from there?
PPS: there actually seems to be an issue with 'deken', as it succeeds to 
install, even if i explicitely tell it to *not* ignore the missing GPG 
signature... but that's a different story.
