    extras.ubuntu.com gpg verification issues

    Hi Ubuntu forums, it's me again.

    After a clean, fresh install of Lubuntu 13.04 32 bit on an offline machine, I am desperately trying to update and upgrade all the packages with the help of an online computer.
    The program of choice was apt-offline and when entering the last command to install the packages:
    Code:
    sudo apt-offline install --verbose apt-offline.zip
    I get the error:
    Code:
    ERROR: I couldn't understand file type extras.ubuntu.com_ubuntu_dists_raring_Release.gpg
    So I thought this would be a bug with apt-offline, but the developer found out that this is a bug with the extra repositories for Ubuntu. Read about it here.

    Please help, as I am not able to solve this by myself.

    It's not clear what you tried to do: an upgrade from an older version, or a fresh install.

    With a fresh install (on an older machine?) I would assume that you would download Lubuntu 13.04, burn the ISO to DVD, and install from there. I don't see how Apt-offline would be involved.

    I am sorry for not formulating the question properly.
    Either check the edited post or read this:

    Lubuntu 13.04 32 bit was successfully installed on the offline machine. The problem is not about upgrading or installing Lubuntu.
    The problem is that I can't update and upgrade all the packages on the offline system, where Lubuntu 13.04 32 bit was freshly installed.

    Thanks, now I understand the question. Sorry, I have no relevant experience.
