User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5)
Description of problem:
Running 'up2date -u' to install this version yeilds the following
up2date error message:
"The package php-4.3.4-1.1 is not signed with a GPG signature.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run up2date -u
Actual Results: php-4.3.4-1.1 and related packages refuse to install
due to the missing gpg signature.
Expected Results: php packages, along with httpd and mod_ssl updates
should install normally.
You can get GPG errors from a corrupt download, have you tried
deleting the RPMs out of /var/spool/up2date and downloading them again?
I just did this and that fixed the problem. I apologize for not
trying this before filing the bug, it did not occur to me.
I think the error message in up2date should be changed to reflect
your advice or better yet, up2date should delete and attempt to re-
download packages getting the 'gpg signature' error before reporting
it as such to the user. Perhaps with some approach that makes sense.
No problem. It looks like there are a few bugs filed against up2date
for that issue already, e.g. bug 111601.
