gpg says that the file is not where you are, so let's investigate this. Please paste this command into the Terminal and press enter to run it:

ls -l UbuntuCode*; echo; find ~ -name UbuntuCodeofConduct-1.1.txt

Wait for that to complete (you'll see a $ _ prompt like before), then select all the new text in the Terminal (starting with the beginning of the line on which you entered the above command), copy it to the clipboard, and paste it here.

(If the output simply enables you to solve the problem--for example, if it turns out that you were in the wrong directory after all--then you can mark this question as Solved.)

Can you help with this problem?
