NO_PUBKEY 6494C6D6997C215E Google Chrome fix

Post by kukamuumuka »

Google has changed their signature verification again, and it causes an error message. The fix is to run

Code: Select all

wget -q -O - https://dl-ssl.google.com/linux/linux_signing_key.pub | sudo apt-key add -

sudo apt-get update
https://www.google.com/linuxrepositories/

Hi, administrollaattori.
Oops, yes, of course, would like to thank you as well. :D
Pointing users to your post has come in handy in two cases already: [1], [2]. And I would be amazed if there would not be more to come ...
Cheers,
Karl

Not sure what this means. I use Google Chrome browser, so should I apply this to my mint?

These are Terminal command to run. From what I understand, the first line downloads and add the key. The second updates the software sources cache.

@JerryF - the question - is this something that will affect everyone using Chrome?

More than likely, yes. If you get error regarding Chrome's signature not being correct, the you'll need to run those commands.
