I run the latest version of betsy (lmde2/mate):

$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: LinuxMint
Description: LMDE 2 Betsy
Release: 2
Codename: betsy


and I get this error message:

$ sudo apt-get update
...
W: GPG error: http://packages.linuxmint.com betsy Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 3EE67F3D0FF405B2 Clement Lefebvre (Linux Mint Package Repository v1) <root@linuxmint.com>


Apparently, there is something wrong with signatures produced by the following key:

$ apt-key list
/etc/apt/trusted.gpg
--------------------
pub 1024D/0FF405B2 2009-04-29
uid Clement Lefebvre (Linux Mint Package Repository v1) <root@linuxmint.com>
sub 2048g/0F346519 2009-04-29


This is the key that came out of the box with the installation. Should I download another public key instead?

Try this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get clean
sudo rm -fr /var/lib/apt/lists/
sudo apt-get clean
sudo apt-get update
