Asked by Marco Scholl on 2011-04-13

we from the yavdr team (https://launchpad.net/~yavdr) have a problem with the ppa service.
we couldn't not upload anythings.

  Uploading vdr_1.7.17-6yavdr5~natty_source.changes: 1k/2k550 Changes file must be signed with a valid GPG signature: Verification failed 3 times: ['General error', 'General error', 'General error'] : Permission denied.
Note: This error might indicate a problem with your passive_ftp setting.
      Please consult dput.cf(5) for details on this configuration option.

we have test it with different packages from different machines.

hi same problem here

Curtis Hovey (sinzui) said : #2

Our sftp server lost its gpg.conf. I am asking an admin ti recreate it.

Curtis Hovey (sinzui) said : #3

The sftp server is back up.

FloSoft (flosoft) said : #4

hi,

it's not solved:

550 Changes file must be signed with a valid GPG signature: Verification failed 3 times: ['General error', 'General error', 'General error'] : Permission denied.

while uploading via ftp

I am also seeing the same behaviour.

Dave Walker (davewalker) said : #6

(incidentally, it did succeed in actually uploading it - because it seemed to fail, i then uploaded a second time at now there are 2 in the queue.)

Fabien Tassin (fta) said : #7

same here, dput started to fail somewhere between Apr 22~23.
All my dailies are impacted.
when doing several uploads in the same dput, it fails after uploading the 1st but before creating the associated .upload file.

I'd like to know that answer too, thanks.

Fabien Tassin (fta) said : #9

Still broken for me too.
sadly, the launchpad devs/admins don't seem to care enough to fix the problem.
My workaround was to dput one source package at a time, and ignore the error + return code.
It works as the upload is complete before dput dies.

Bhavani Shankar (bhavi) said : #10

for me too I uploaded the same package 3 times because of the above error only to find it has succeeded at first attempt

I'll follow the above workaround till the problem is fixed

DNS (dns) said : #11

Hm i got that problem right now... something happened to the server or is it me?

I'm also affected by this issue, any news?

To clarify, this somehow regressed, as I've uploaded my source package several times in the past.

To clarify (again). The error is misleading as the upload is actually successful. Sorry for the noise, the issue is weird indeed.

But the blog entry told us it is an improvement.

http://blog.launchpad.net/cool-new-stuff/launchpad-package-upload-improvements

How could anyone complain about this now that we know things have improved?

I tried again today and didn't get the "Changes file must be signed with a valid GPG signature: Verification failed 3 times: ["(7, 9, u'No public key')", "(7, 9, u'No public key')", "(7, 9, u'No public key')"] : Permission denied." message(s).

Was this fixed?

Malcolm Scott (malcscott) said : #17

This has started happening to me:

550 Changes file must be signed with a valid GPG signature: Verification failed 3 times: ['General error', 'General error', 'General error'] : Permission denied.

(but the upload seems to be successful nonetheless).

James Cuzella (trinitronx) said : #18

Just started getting this too! The .changes file gpg signature verification fails.

It looks like a problem on the server end. My machine says the signature is good, and the .deb uploads work fine:

Jamon Camisso (jamon) said : #19

Getting the same error as well:

Changes file must be signed with a valid GPG signature: Verification failed 3 times: ['General error', 'General error', 'General error'] : Permission denied

Any yet the build worked no problem. If someone sees this message and has access to the logs, the upload was sometime after Mon 26 Sep 2011 12:37:28 PM EDT, and the package was phpmyadmin_3.4.5-1ubuntu1~lucid0

MMS-Prodeia (mms-prodeia) said : #20

Same problem here ... never had a problem for ages.

Getting:
Changes file must be signed with a valid GPG signature: Verification failed 3 times: ['General error', 'General error', 'General error'] : Permission denied.

Same here too. It uploaded after a few attempts.

Dear all

This is an intermittent problem which is proving particularly hard to track down. It does NOT affect your uploads in any way, it's a harmless error message. The upload will still reach the PPA.

Imre Gergely (cemc) said : #23

I'm also getting this error message since yesterday. Packages are uploading fine though.

Troy Straszheim (straszheim) said : #24

I've got it as well, since last night. Uploading packages one by one in a loop.

PeterPall (peterpall) said : #25

Did anybody already file a bug report against launchpad for this?

Or might the cause be a problem in dput? I am using precise pangolin and dput 0.9.6

PeterPall (peterpall) said : #26

Oh... Sorry... found out just now that the fact that a bug is already filed is written at the top of this page.

chris lea (chris-lea) said : #27

I'm seeing it also, from multiple machines, running either Lucid or Maverick.

chris lea (chris-lea) said : #28

And for me, the uploads are currently NOT reaching my PPAs.

Cory Fields (theuni) said : #29

Seeing this here as well for the last few days.

PeterPall (peterpall) said : #30

Triaged sounds cool. If there is anything I can test I will give it a try.
