    Can't update because of "unauthenticated sources"?

    Hi,

    Running my update manager i get the following:
    Code:
    Requires installation of untrusted packages
    
    This requires installing packages from unauthenticated sources.
    and when pressing details:
    Code:
    r-base r-base-core r-base-dev r-base-html r-cran-boot r-cran-class r-cran-cluster r-cran-codetools r-cran-foreign r-cran-mass r-cran-matrix r-cran-mgcv r-cran-nlme r-cran-nnet r-cran-rpart r-cran-spatial r-doc-html r-recommended
    If i run
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    this is the response:
    Code:
    christian@Christians:~$ sudo apt-get update

    Re: Can't update because of "unauthenticated sources"?

    For starters, uncheck CDrom in software sources and update.

    Re: Can't update because of "unauthenticated sources"?

    The PPA cooperjona/stormcloud no longer seems to be available. The only thing I am finding is a tarball.

    https://launchpad.net/stormcloud/+download

    So I would just uncheck it for now in software sourses.

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Re...g_Repositories

    And try another update

    Re: Can't update because of "unauthenticated sources"?

    I had the same problem using update manager.
    After finding this post, I also tried "sudo apt-get update" to see what I would get.
    Right after that I decided to try "sudo apt-get upgrade" (gave up using update manager), and it worked for me.
    Very weird right? Would this work there for you too?

    Cheers
