Hi

So i been looking into linux a while now and have decided to give it a go on my main laptop along side windows for now.

If i can get it up and running witch im sure i can with the help of you guys i will make it my main OS,

Im finding most of what i need in these forums but i cant find a fix for an issue im having when trying to update my driver manager screen

Failed to download repository information

Check your Internet connection.

Well this is a linux mint forum, there may be a few here with suse experience, but if you really want to use suse you'd probably get more help on one of their forums.

Try this for NO_PUBKEY error, run in Terminal:

Code: Select all

 sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 76F1A20FF987672F 

Code: Select all

 sudo apt update

the thing your missing is the keys, when adding a new repository always look for a way to add the key for the repository.

for wine 5.x i know the opensuse repository is needed however the key for the repository isn't as clear as day but is on the same page as the repository.

go threw the steps again on the wine website and look for the parts where there are keys for the repositories you have added.

Thanks that sorted that part.

I have disabled the repo for the other one and now I’m able to update driver manager.

Ok, I wasn't sure about disabling the repo, but if it worked you're good.
