    10.04 LTS and Have a Bad Signature

    Something is slightly hosed in my update process. I tried to use the Update Manager or apt-get update, and I get a notice that I have a bad signature. I think it is related to VirtualBox. Anyway, here is the response I get with apt-get update:

    Reading package lists... Done
    W: GPG error: http://us.archive.ubuntu.com lucid Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

    What do I do to fix this?

    I used the process in the tutorial and I got back a new sugnature key. But when I try apt-get update again, it comes up with the same error and showing the original signature key. I may have added one, but I did not get rid of the old one.

    oldefoxx;

    Maybe try it like this ??
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com 40976EAF437D05B5
    The format is slightly different than that in askubuntu's thread.

    just try'n to help

    Re: 10.04 LTS and Have a Bad Signature

    The plain and simple approach is to leave 10.04 and do a clean install of 12.04.2 or 12.10.
    With 10.04 you are out of support in a month anyway.
