[SOLVED]Update Manager, GPG error / BADSIG errors on Refresh

Postby JaguarNight on Fri Oct 07, 2011 3:13 pm

LM10 64bit

Update Manager -> click Refresh button -> error box pops up with these 2 errors:

W: GPG error: http://archive.ubuntu.com maverick Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>
W: GPG error: http://archive.getdeb.net maverick-getdeb Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG A8A515F046D7E7CF GetDeb Archive Automatic Signing Key <archive@getdeb.net>

what the heck? both Ubuntu and GetDeb keys are all original from the installation...
i'm connecting to main server, updates are listed and working ok...

what is the problems here ? keys need replacement ?

Regards.

Try importing the keys again as per the instructions in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1669999

found the solution in some threads here:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=803585
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... omments/24

looks like it's a minor bug...

basically running a series of these commands clears the errors:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo cd /var/lib/apt
sudo mv lists lists.old
sudo mkdir -p lists/partial
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

Thank you for posting this solution. I just had the same problem in Mint 12, and the commands you listed sorted it out.

I ran the following commands in Terminal:
sudo apt-get clean
sudo cd /var/lib/apt
sudo mv lists lists.old
sudo mkdir -p lists/partial
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update

It still didn't fix my missing keys.

So, I just installed a program called "Y PPA Manager." In this program, there was an "Advanced" button that will help you find your missing PPA GPG keys. It worked for me!
