    help: invalid signature in sources.list for VirtualBox

    Hello everyone,

    every time I do sudo apt-get update I get this error at the end:

    Code:
    Fetched 199B in 0s (265B/s)
    Reading package lists... Done
    W: GPG error: http://download.virtualbox.org intrepid Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG DCF9F87B6DFBCBAE Sun Microsystems, Inc. (xVM VirtualBox archive signing key) <info@virtualbox.org>
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems
    I went to the website of VirtualBox and they said to get the key, do this:
    Code:
    wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/sun_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    Then is see "OK" in my terminal but I still get that error message.

    Also when I do
    sudo apt-key add sun_vbox.asc
    I get
    gpg: can't open `sun_vbox.asc': No such file or directory

    I have VirtualBox version 2.2.2 (the latest).

    This is the content of my /etc/apt/sources.list file:
    Code:

    I already tried some other method whith running a script for automatically searching keys (or something like that) which helped me with the errors for KDE libraries, but not with this error.

    Sadly, it appears that the download site is busted. No real information yet. Nothing posted on the virtualbox site.

    Ok.

    Well I'll just remove the line from the sources.list then, for me there's no necessity for upgrades/patches for VirtualBox anyway (I just wanted to know what was wrong).

    Hi, I'm also experiencing the same problem, others as well: http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=12384

    So I just downloaded the .deb for Virtualbox 3.04 and installed from there.
    It's OK, everything we know will become obsolete at some time.
