As of November 1st, 2005, debian testing has finally switched to a new version of apt that uses gpg key signatures for secure verification of packages (see the announcement). Unfortunately, package updates released since the new year have been signed with a new key, causing some error messages when updating.
Here's the error message I saw when trying to apply the most recent updates:
# apt-get update Get:1 http://mirrors.tummy.com testing Release.gpg [378B] Hit http://mirrors.tummy.com testing Release Hit http://mirrors.tummy.com testing/main Packages Hit http://mirrors.tummy.com testing/main Sources Fetched 378B in 0s (3567B/s) Reading package lists... Done W: GPG error: http://mirrors.tummy.com testing Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 010908312D230C5F W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
As root run:
wget http://ftp-master.debian.org/ziyi_key_2006.asc -O - | apt-key add -
or, if you're using sudo:
sudo wget http://ftp-master.debian.org/ziyi_key_2006.asc -O - | sudo apt-key add -
Have a happy and secure year!comments powered by Disqus
