    Requires installation of untrusted packages

    After reading past posts I go to a terminal and try to enter sudo apt-get update to correct the problem but it asks for a password but when I enter my password it will not work. I enter my update password that works in every other case. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    In order to get useful help, you should provide the forum with some more information. What are you trying to install/achieve? What version of *buntu are you running?

    Re: Requires installation of untrusted packages

    Sorry about the lack of info, I am using Ubuntu 12.04 and auto updates, Todays list included Pylon lock file (new install) and encrypted bandwidth efficent back-up duplicity. All 14 of the updates would install but these two. These give the message requires installation of untrusted packages message., but when I try and use a terminal to do the sudo fix I am unable to get past the password request.

    Can you please post between code tags the exact commands you're running in the terminal and the output you get from them.

    The message you're getting means that you're not typing correctly your user password and that's why it's not proceeding with the update.

    The update manager requires the password to authorize the update, it works at that time, then it goes to the Requires etc. when trying to update, but when I try and use the pass word in terminal it will not work.

    jonel@jonel:~$ sudo apt-getupdate
    [sudo] password for jonel:
    nonSorry, try again.
    [sudo] password for jonel:

    This is the terminal response at every try.

    Re: Requires installation of untrusted packages

    Please post what groups returns when you enter it in a terminal. This is what you should get
    Code:
    sudo apt-getupdate
    [sudo] password for bapoumba_lxde: 
    sudo: apt-getupdate: command not found
    because the command is sudo apt-get update with a space. This means you can run package managers from the GUI and not from the terminal. We need to find out where this comes from.

    Edit: where is the "non" in front of Sorry try again coming from ? You should not be getting it either:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    [sudo] password for bapoumba_lxde: 
    Sorry, try again.
    [sudo] password for bapoumba_lxde:
