    Question (Release) key problem.

    Hi!

    I was trying to install some DEB packages from OBS repositories at my (Debian based) system.However, I wasn't able to do it properly.

    When following the authors instructions, tried to add the repo key (apt-key add - < Release.key), I received error messages about it, like this:

    key A41001039EC56A71:
    1 signature not checked due to a missing key
    OK

    I contacted the authors, but no proper solution could be found.
    Any idea-suggestion about it?
    TIA!
    Th.

    Looking at that, I cannot tell whether that is an error message or an informational message.

    I think you need to ask about this on a Debian forum or similar place.

    Default Απ: (Release) key problem.

    THANKS nrickert!

    It's definitely an error. Means that the key is invalid or expired.
    It must be corrected from the repo manager (the developer).
    Nothing can be done from the user.

    Please let me, be more specific.
    Is there any way (for the developer) to generate a new key or something?
    Preferably a non-expired one?
    Rebuilding the package, already tried, but didn't help.

    Hi
    Can you provide details of the OBS project and package (a link)?

    Default Απ: (Release) key problem.

    Gsmartcontrol's official Debian repo: https://software.opensuse.org/downlo...=gsmartcontrol
    Before s a month or so, I had the same problem with Steven Pusher's Veracrypt repo.
    I can't find the link now. Maybe the author took it down.
    I think this is the related link: https://build.opensuse.org/package/s...rypt/veracrypt

    Hi
    Can you see the email at this link? https://build.opensuse.org/user/show/stevenpusser

    If you have an OBS account, you can always leave a comment on the project or package page...

    You can see the gpg key, I can import via osc and rpm, not sure on Deb....

    Code:
    sudo rpm --import - <<_END_KEY
    $(osc signkey offending-project)
    _END_KEY

    What makes you believe this key is expired?

    You show some message out of context and request that we guess what you did. Copy and paste full command invocation and its output that was used to emit error message, someone may be able to suggest next step.

    You don't have to take my word!
    Try it for yourself.

    Just go to https://software.opensuse.org/downlo...=gsmartcontrol and try to follow the instructions (1. add the key and 2. add the repo) for Debian stable (9).

    You expect me to waste my time installing Debian for something you would need 5 seconds? Well, I do not have any problems with this key and if I would I know how to troubleshoot it. I would not demand others to do it for me.

    1) I expect NOTHING from you!

    2) I don't have any problem myself, because I don't need these repos.
    My personal preference is compiling packages locally.
    I was just tried to help other people (mostly newcomers) who needs a repo.

    3) I really don't expected such a hostile behaviour, but it's your project, your way.

    4) Personally I've lost interesting if OBS malfunctioning or not.
    I'll inform the 2 involved developers, just in case who wants to participate in this thread.

    Over and out.
