No valid OpenPGP key for wget -q http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/medibuntu-key.gpg

Asked by Will Hebert on 2006-12-23

Hello,

For some reason the standard command

wget -q http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

results in an GPG error: http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com dapper Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 2EBC26B60C5A2783

Sorry but I am a relative newbie to ubuntu and haven't been able to google my way out of it. Any suggestions on how to get the working OpenPGP key?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

This is strange, I don't have any error each time I try. :/

You can try without the "-q" option, to check if something goes wrong during the download of the key.

But you have other ways to get the key :

* [Using UI] Go with a browser to http://medibuntu.sos-sts.com/repo/medibuntu-key.gpg, Right Click, "save page as", and then, in the System > Administration menu, open "Softwares sources", "Authentication" tab, click on the "import key file" button, select the downloaded key, and that's done.

* [Using a terminal] Download the key from ubuntu keyserver:
gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 0x0C5A2783 ; gpg --export -a 0x0C5A2783 | sudo apt-key add -

(don't forget to rerun "sudo apt-get update after that.)

Cheers.
