Google Chrome: no pubkey error - NO_PUBKEY 6494C6D6997C215E

Post by magicchance »

Was just now trying to run apt update and got this error warning:

W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available:
NO_PUBKEY 6494C6D6997C215E W: Failed to fetch http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb/d ... elease.gpg The following signatures
couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 6494C6D6997C215E W: Some index files failed to download. They have
been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Is there anything I should be doing now, or should I just leave it alone?

You will want to start your own posting for that. Chrome and Chromium are two separate applications.

There is another thread on this issue
viewtopic.php?f=47&t=251133

Try this - it worked for me for a key that was out of date.

sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com `sudo apt update 2>&1 | grep -o '[0-9A-Z]\{16\}$' | xargs`
