View Full Version : [SOLVED] Installing Oracle XE - Problem getting GPG key

January 21st, 2011, 09:59 PM
I am trying to add this repository to the aptitude repo list.

deb http://oss.oracle.com/debian unstable main non-free

I am trying to install Oracle XE... For that, I have to add this specific repo. I am following this article here.

There is no problem editing the sources.list file. But when I try to wget the GPG key, there is this error:

ERROR 404: Not Fount.
gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found

Looks like wget cannot access the key because it is not there. I do not know about the structure of GPG keys and their relation to repositories. All I know is for every repo that I add, there has to be a key retrieved from Ubuntu keyserver. However, in the above case, I am trying to get a key from the Oracle site which of course is not there. Has the structure been changed? What should I do now? I visit the oracle website and there is no information regarding the subject that I can find.

Any help will be duly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I would try going to the Oracle XE download website and read Oracle's instructions. The article you linked to is 3 1/2 years old. I think Oracle released 11g since that article was written.
