Need help with `cd:/content: Invalid signature. Installation aborted.`

This succeeded: https://openqa.opensuse.org/tests/overview?distri=opensuse&version=Tumbleweed&build=20160901&groupid=1 installing the image from http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/iso/openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Current.iso.mirrorlist (for which the md5 and sha signatures match).
But I got this cd:/content: Invalid signature. Installation aborted. message:
https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/glouj9nwcsl48a9/Screenshot%202016-09-07%2017.35.22.png](https://www.dropbox.com/s/glouj9nwcsl48a9/Screenshot%202016-09-07%2017.35.22.png?dl=0)
Indeed the cd:/content didn’t verify as content.key wasn’t a trusted signature:

How to proceed from here?

I’m guessing this is at OS install???

If installing from a DVD then run media check and be sure the ISO check sums are correct

If USB device be sure the ISO check sums are correct

That cannot be your problem. It is simply telling you that you have not trusted the signing key.

You are new to using “gpg”, so you are not familiar with this message.

If you have not yet done so, I recommend creating your own gpg key. Then logout and login again. That should get “gpg-agent” running and avoid that “gpg-agent” message.

Then you can sign that opensuse key that you imported. Once you have signed that key, it will no longer be called a untrusted invalid key. (Yes, the learning curve for “gpg” is a bit steep).

I have no idea what causes the “Content: invalid signature” message. I’m inclined to side with gogalthorp, that you installed with a DVD, but it was a bad burn and the message might be telling you that. Personally, I install with a USB flash drive, and I have never had an install fail that way.

If gpg issues a message like this on a R/O installation system, I blame the installation system for not setting itself up in a way that it’s easy to verify itself from the console.

I’m installing from image for which the md5 and sha signatures match. So it cannot be a bad burn.

The same install - besides on VMware Fusion - also failed on VMware Workstation and on ESXi5.

I’ve now dug up a May 16 2015 openSUSE-Tumbleweed-DVD-x86_64-Current.iso that does install fine on ESXi (I’ve not had a chance yet to try the rest).

My conclusion: The current ISO image is broken.

If burned to a DVD could be a bad burn even if the ISO is OK. run media check

Like I mentioned before: it’s an image, not a physical DVD.

Tried on Proxmox KVM with the 20160901 and 20160905 NET ISO images: same story despite the E1000 virtual NIC they don’t get an IP address, time out and reboot or halt.

Now trying the 20160905 DVD ISO image there. Though very slow it finally got an IP address but finally gives up with this:

Now trying with an old 20150516 DVD ISO image I still had that works fine on ESXi5.
Probably works fine here too. But need to run for an appointment.

That old image works fine on KVM as well.
