    Problems updating and installing

    Hi,

    I seem to be having issues updating. Through update manager things just seem to hang, and if I try sudo apt-get update I get errors like Err 403 Forbidden. I tried creating a sources list then replacing the old one, but upon running the keys as the website suggested this also failed.

    Please post the output of

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    so we can see which sources are kicking the 403.
    Jane, stop this crazy thing!

    Actually, today sudo apt-get update seems to work fine and no Err 403 generated, strange. Never the less if I try to update using update manager, which has a list of updates for me ready to install, I get:

    Requires installation of untrusted packages

    The action would require the installation of packages from unauthenticated sources.

    Is there any functionality gained (other than ease of use) in the graphical update tool not realized by using apt from the command line?

    I am admittedly a command line junkie and still looking for that way to edit my spreadsheets from the command line (not really). :-/

    I'm more worried about why it's suddenly stopped working, and also why even after the command line update, the gui updater still has a big list of things it seems to want to update. Could it be a problem with the authentication keys or something?

    Re: Problems updating and installing

    Actually it was apt-get upgrade that was successful, sorry. When I do apt-get update I still get the errors:

    Re: Problems updating and installing

    I *seem* to have fixed this by manually adding keys in the manner

    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys B302120208A255AF
    for each missing key. I tried sudo apt-keys update first with no success. I then do sudo apt-get update with no errors.

    Finally on update manager things seem to now install (I'm somewhat puzzled why there are items left to install at here; why did sudo apt-get update not do the installs?)

    Just FYI, what you ended up doing is the standard procedure for adding repositories/PPAs. You must manually add the keys for those sources, either as you did or by installing a keyring package for the source (if it exists). This is a security feature. ('sudo apt-key update' only updates the existing local keyring with the keyring from the corresponding distribution archive.)

    'sudo apt-get update' does not install anything. Did you mean 'sudo apt-get upgrade'? If so, if you don't tell apt that it can install from untrusted sources, it won't do so; that's probably why it didn't already install those packages.

    Not necessarily. If you add a ppa using the add-apt-repository command (or the apt-add-repository command for 12.10), the keys are added automatically. IMO, a much simpler approach if the ppa is listed at launchpad.net.

    Good catch. You're right; I forgot that that option existed for Launchpad PPAs.
