forgotten moonstone user name's email address

Asked by Frank P on 2019-01-19

I have an existing ubuntu one account with the user name of moonstone.I cannot remember the email addressed attached to it.I then created a new ubuntu one account with the username of marvelcomic hoping that I can access moonstone which is the user name for this computer.My full name of Frank P is also attached to moonstone and marvelcomic.
My problem is I cannot get my public key for the canonical livepatch.I have only received a private key, or I am not looking in the correct file.It is not in ~/ .ssh/ or ~/ .ssh/

Can you please help?

Kind regards and sorry for the bother I am causing you.

If you don't have access to that email address, I'm afraid we cannot give you access to the "moonstone" Ubuntu One account. Perhaps you've misremembered the username in some way. (There's no particular reason why an Ubuntu One account name would be the same as the name of your computer.)

As for Canonical's livepatch service, there seems to be some confusion here. ~/.ssh/ and so on are for SSH public keys, which have absolutely nothing to do with the livepatch service. Livepatch tokens can be fetched from (signing in via Ubuntu One), and they consist only of a 32-character token; there's no separate public or private half. It shouldn't matter if you've lost an old account in this case; I believe you can just get a token for a new account and enrol your machine using that.

Can you help with this problem?
