Update error: downloading package information

Asked by Bob Harvey on 2007-03-09

I get the following message after running the Software Updates -> 'Check' button:

W: GPG error: http://wine.budgetdedicated.com dapper Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 58403026387EE263

What should I do now?

Hello Bob!

1. You have to add the repository's key to your system's list of trusted APT keys. From the terminal:

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

2. Next you have to add the repository to your system's list:

sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/edgy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

Note: Change 'edgy' to 'dapper' if you're using Ubuntu Dapper 6.06

3. After that, run:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine

Good luck!

Thanks heaps for your quick response. I don't really understand just what I have done (I mean in the sense of being able to do it again myself should it happen with some other package) or why it was necessary (is this some kind of bug or weakness in Update?) but it is great to get it sorted, thank you.
