Spotify problem [SOLVED]

Post by chazb » Fri Jun 14, 2019 4:39 pm

LM 18.3 Sylvia, Xfce
I downloaded Spotify with Synaptic, didn't like it and completely removed it with Synaptic, or so I thought. Did an update and got a warning,,,,,

Code: Select all

W: GPG error: http://repository.spotify.com stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A87FF9DF48BF1C90
W: The repository 'http://repository.spotify.com stable InRelease' is not signed.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
so there are parts of it still on my computer. Went to Software Sources did a FIX and Purge and updated the and updated the Cache, and got this,,,,,,,,,

W: GPG error: http://repository.spotify.com stable InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A87FF9DF48BF1C90
W: The repository 'http://repository.spotify.com stable InRelease' is not signed.

How do I get all of Soptify off my computer?

Hi again chazb,

Go back into Software Source. On the left click on PPAs and look for any spotify entries. Click on them then click on Remove. Do the same with Additional repositories and Authentication keys. If the "Update the cache" thingy in the upper right becomes active, click on it.

Now apt update in the terminal should return clear.
