    Re: Signature Verification Failure

    I had to do this on lucid:

    cd /var/lib/apt
    sudo mv lists lists.old
    sudo mkdir -p lists/partial
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get update

    Re: Signature Verification Failure

    The old fix worked on 10.10 maverick meerkat here too but still a few issues:

    I got 'Unknown id: cd' when I used the su cd /var/lib/apt command, or sudo: cd: command not found when I tried sudo cd /var/lib/apt.

    So I typed this command without using sudo and got updates okay. I'm still getting the following GPG error at the end though:

    W: GPG error: http://extras.ubuntu.com maverick Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY DB141E2302FDF932

    I've probably missed something but not sure what. Any ideas? Thanks.

    In my ubuntu 9.04 the above "old fix" solved the following error:

    apt-get clean
    apt-get update
    with sudo and it just finished updating.

    Thanks I was hitting my head against a wall for a while on this one
    When I type in this old fix, I get this:

    evan@Trigger-laptop:/var/lib/apt$ mv lists lists.old
    mv: try to overwrite `lists.old/lists', overriding mode 0755 (rwxr-xr-x)? What should I do?

    EDIT

    I went System---->Administration---->Software Sources and changed Source code to "Main"

    I opened a terminal and entered

    sudo apt-get update

    and didn't get any errors.
