Remove extras key in F7
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:09 EST
Description of problem:
/etc/apt/gpg has a public key installed with Apt that is pointing
to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-extras (gpg-pubkey-1ac70ce6-41bebeef).
Running apt-get with this key available there are constant nags from apt that
there are missing keys, then something like fetching keys, then unable to
import keys. Obvious as there is no key for extras with F7.
The fix is simple and only requires the removal of this key. Then apt-get no
longer complains, but perhaps whoever is maintaining Apt for F7 could rebuild
it so that this key is no longer included.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run apt-get update as root
No problems with installing updates, as another key is installed when you
install apt, but there is just a bit of confusion with apt claiming there are
missing keys, which in reality there arn't, and appears to be due to an old
key leftover from FC6 for the extras repo which is still being included with
Apt installed on F7
Thanks, I missed this one!

apt-0.5.15lorg3.2-12.fc7 should have this fixed, can you please check? Thanks!

Sorry for the delay. more problems with keys. No link from /etc/apt/gpg
to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-test. The new apt package downloaded
ok, but failed to install because apt-get couldn't find the key.
Problem resolved by creating a link (gpg-pubkey-30c9ecf8) pointing
So. I removed the dodgy extras key from the directory it was hidden in, and
put it back in /etc/apt/gpg, got rid of the directory, and ran apt-get install
apt again, and apt updated with no problems. My new link to fedora-test
remained, and the unwanted key for fedora extras was gone.
I can verify that the unwanted key for the extras repo in etc/apt/gpg on F7
has been resolved, and that key no longer is seen with
Thanks for the quick fix.
btw. I know I opened the bug, but you can go ahead and close it if you want.
