Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyring.ubuntu.com --recv-keys XXXXXXXXXXXXX


Where xxxxxxxxxxxx is substituted for the numbers in your error messages, so, for example the first one would be:


Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyring.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3EE67F3D0FF405B2


Do it for every error message you received.

Ok I got around this by changing the commands structure. I elimated the "keyserver keyring.ubuntu.com --recv-keys XXXXXXXXXXXXX" and just use
sudo apt-key update -(entered the key #'s), but I still get a error on a couple of requests. Got a few updates...will try somthing else. This is fun trying to figure all this stuff out. It helps me understand the program better.

Sorree :oops:

Looks like I typed it wrong, try this instead:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 3EE67F3D0FF405B2
