Since yesterday I can not upgrade my 9.04 to 9.10.

Wednesday I could upgrade (I did a reinstall after because my partitions were not set right for triple boot), but I get an error message now when I try to upgrade.


tom@tom-laptop:~$ update-manager -d
extracting 'karmic.tar.gz'
authenticate 'karmic.tar.gz' against 'karmic.tar.gz.gpg'
exception from gpg: GnuPG exited non-zero, with code 1

I have exact the same problem.

I found out what it was. The mirror where i wanted to upgrade from (nl.archive.ubuntu.com) is giving me problems. I replaced it with de.archive.ubuntu.com and now it works.

karmic is not officialy released yet. its still in beta. that might be a cause too

Solved thanks to Newjersey_nl (good first post!!!)

Seems that the dutch mirrors have a wrong Signature or something like that.
Switched to Main US servers and am upgrading atm!.
