Claim Code error when setting up Photon on Local Cloud

I am attempting to setup the Photon on the Local Cloud server but am running into the following error:

Error: Unable to obtain claim code

I found this discussion on github regarding the same error:

however the proposed solution (particle core add DEVICE_ID) still results in the same error.

$ particle core add DEVICE_ID

$ particle setup
? Found "Photon-66KM". Would you like to perform setup on this one now? Yes

! PROTIP: You will need to know the password for your Wi-Fi network (if any) to proceed.

Any ideas?

You can simply add the Photon private key and it should work.

Check the core_keys directory to see if they are there and reboot the server. It should connect after that
