[Solved] Trashed LMDE Debian testing/multimedia keyrings

Postby kmb42vt » Thu Mar 24, 2011 9:42 pm

I really pulled a boneheaded maneuver and removed all of the Debian testing keyrings from my LMDE installation. Only thing I have left is one for Squeeze stable and one for Linux Mint repos. No testing, no Debian multimedia--nothing. I was running the default LMDE with sources set to testing. I have no idea how to reinstall these, Google's no use and Synaptic refuses to update without them so any help would be greatly appreciated. Please don't ask me how I managed this since I don't know myself. I should know how to fix this but my brain has deserted me. [banging head against wall] Please help?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install --reinstall debian-archive-keyring debian-multimedia-keyring


APT will warn that the packages cannot be authenticated, but you can override its warning.

Thanks Vincent! Worked like a charm. I feel so damn foolish. Some sort of flu has right hold of me and my mind just isn't working. I should have known better than to fiddle with my install when my mind's full of mush. :?
