Thread: Apper Unsigned Packages

  1. #1

    Default Apper Unsigned Packages

    I'm running OpenSuse 12.1 KDE x64.

    I added the Packman repos. Apper notified me that I had 76 updates, so I let it go ahead and get started. Now I keep getting the error:

    "You are about to install unsigned packages..."

    I keep clicking yes, and after 10 times or so Packagekit gets mad and starts asking for a password. I've had to enter my root password 5 times now. I bet I've clicked "yes" more than 20 times.

    Is there some way to get updates without being nagged to death?

    Tried several commands online, but they aren't working:

    So, I decided to take a break from clicking "Yes" over and over again and came back to another error: "You have failed to provide correct authentication."

    So, basically, I can't update my system right now.

    Tried changing the Packman repo to one in Germany; no change. I guess I just wont update this system for awhile.

    Talking to myself, but maybe it will help somebody. Success for the GPG key.


    mooreted@linux-8qz9:~> sudo lynx --dump http://packman.jacobs-university.de/public-keys.asc |gpg --import
    gpg: /home/mooreted/.gnupg/trustdb.gpg: trustdb created
    gpg: key 9A795806: public key "PackMan Build Service (PackMan Build Service) <packman@links2linux.de>" imported
    gpg: Total number processed: 1
    gpg: imported: 1

    Now, can I update?

    Nope, still doesn't work.

    Ok, I'm lost. Need help.

    Ok, it's actually not Packman, it's the official OpenSuse repos. I just disabled Packman, and still getting the error.

    Changing mirrors.

    Go into Yast. Check "Software Repositories". Click on "GPG Keys". That should check whether you have the repo keys installed.

    Well, it doesn't show any. No update should be this hard, by the way.

    Guess I'll search around and see if I can find some.
