View Full Version : [ubuntu] Update Manager throws an error

September 29th, 2012, 01:52 PM
Update Manager this morning was reporting an error with a missing header problem. In searching here for recent issues, picked up the following steps:

sudo apt-get clean all
sudo apt-get update

Results in the following error, just prior to asking about installing any necessary patches:

W: GPG error: http://extras.ubuntu.com precise Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 16126D3A3E5C1192 Ubuntu Extras Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

The recent changes are two: 1 - replaced router and 2 - ran update manager which had grub updates (4).

Update Manager now appears to run successfully, so perhaps this is transient?
