    Default Validation Check Failed ||||| Need a solution

    Hi,

    I am using opensuse 11.3 (64 Bit) Gnome.

    Today, when I started the online update from yast it gave the following warning messages

    Code:
    File repomd.xml from repository Packman Repository
    http://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/mirrors/packman/suse/11.3/
    is signed with the following GnuPG key, but the integrity check failed: 
    
    ID: 45A1D0671ABD1AFB
    Fingerprint: F887 5B88 0D51 8B6B 8C53 0D13 45A1 D067 1ABD 1AFB
    Name: PackMan Project (signing key) <packman@links2linux.de>
    Created: 09/21/2010
    Expires: 09/20/2014
    
    This means that the file has been changed by accident or by an attacker
    since the repository creator signed it. Using it is a big risk
    for the integrity and security of your system.

    After I selected no again this

    Code:
    File repomd.xml from repository Packman Repository
    http://ftp.uni-erlangen.de/pub/mirrors/packman/suse/11.3/
    is signed with the following GnuPG key, but the integrity check failed: 
    
    ID: 45A1D0671ABD1AFB
    Fingerprint: F887 5B88 0D51 8B6B 8C53 0D13 45A1 D067 1ABD 1AFB
    Name: PackMan Project (signing key) <packman@links2linux.de>
    Created: 09/21/2010
    Expires: 09/20/2014
    
    This means that the file has been changed by accident or by an attacker
    since the repository creator signed it. Using it is a big risk
    for the integrity and security of your system.

    And finally this


    Code:
    There was an error in the repository initialization.
    [|] Valid metadata not found at specified URL(s)
    History:
    - Signature verification failed for repomd.xml
    I just also received a notification saying "A security signature is not present"

    I didn't modify anything regarding the repos.

    What's the reason behind these ?

    Thanks to both for your replies.

    Then I guess there is noting wrong at my end.

    Just one more thing. While updating, when asked if I want to use the key what should I select yes or no ?
