Description Nigel Henry 2007-07-08 16:04:43 EDT
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): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1.run apt-get update as root 
Actual results: 
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 
Expected results:

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 
to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-test. 
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.
