[RESOLVED] Mintupdate - NOT AUTHORIZED

Postby GeneBenson on Thu Mar 28, 2013 3:48 am

I'm using LMDE 301303 Mate edition tracking Testing repositories (not Update packs). Whenever Mintupdate tells me there are updates available I hit the "Install Updates" button and up pops a window showing the packages to be installed (as usual), except it also starts with "NOT AUTHORIZED". If I click on the arrow next to this I see the same packages listed as under the "To be Installed" header. If I choose to continue the install goes fine. This happens every time there are updates. :(

If I cancel the install, fire up Synaptic, and try the install there, I get the same pop-up window, listing the same packages to install, but no "NOT AUTHORIZED" message. If I choose to continue the install goes fine. :D

If I do an apt-get dist-upgrade the same packages are listed as above. Again, no "NOT AUTHORIZED" message. If I choose to continue the install goes fine. :D

This leads me to believe that my sources.list is fine and all the needed keys are installed. If it were a problem with a certain repository or key then all 3 methods of updating should complain. It seems to me Mintupdate just doesn't like having other repositories than the standard Mint repositories in sources.list. :(

Here is an excerpt from the Mintupdate log:
Code: Select all
++ Launching mintUpdate in root mode
++ Starting refresh
++ Auto-refresh timer is going to sleep for 15 minutes, 0 hours and 0 days
++ Found 4 recommended software updates
++ Refresh finished
++ Install requested by user
++ Will install dpkg
++ Will install dpkg-dev
++ Will install dselect
++ Will install libdpkg-perl
++ Ready to launch synaptic
++ Return code:0
++ Install finished

Just to be complete I'm using mintupdate-debian v1.0.6.
Here is my sources.list:
Code: Select all
deb http://http.debian.net/debian testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb http://mirror.tuxis.nl/packages/ debian main upstream import incoming
deb http://mirror.rts-informatique.fr/linuxmint/debian/latest/multimedia testing main non-free
deb http://packages.siduction.org/xfcenext unstable main


This is the contents of /usr/share/keyrings/:
Code: Select all
debian-archive-keyring.gpg        debian-multimedia-keyring.gpg       siduction-archive-keyring.gpg
debian-archive-removed-keys.gpg   debian-multimedia-removed-keys.gpg
debian-archive-removed-keys.gpg~  linuxmint-keyring.gpg

Not exactly the end of the world. Just a bit annoying. :wink:

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Same issue here. Also I am using LMDE, but tracking Testing directly.
Problem is visible since 2nd half of March. Before this date Mint-Update-Debian has worked w/o problems.
Something has changed within Debian Testing in the 2nd half of March, which breaks Mint-Update-Debian.

As workaround I have now switched from Mint-Update-Debian to Mint-Update, which don't show this issue.

Best regards

Thanks for the confirmation and the tip diva4. I made the switch. Now just need some updates. :D

Got some updates today. Mintupdate worked fine. No more "NOT AUTHORIZED" message. Since the bug still exists in mintupdate-debian I am marking this as Resolved instead of Solved. :?

the root cause of the problem is certainly other and change from mintupdate-debian (maintained and designed to work with lmde) to mintupdate (never prepared to handle lmde) is not a solution
