    Need to Verify Signing Keys - How To

    Curious and need to know ... Are UbuntuStudio signing keys the same as Ubuntu? Or Xubuntu?

    Need to verify that a friend has the correct signing keys before doing updates. How can we do this in v16.04?
    I ran the following - and even though I running UbuntuStudio it shows Ubuntu. Makes me question - is this normal?
    He has Xubuntu. So how can a person find out???

    Code:
    lsb_release -d
    Description:    Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
    Thanks!

    Failed to D-Load Repo Info - Then Upto Date ???

    Noticed a recent update for Software Updater when running a recent update. Now I get this ...

    "failed to download repository information" in UbuntuStudio v16.04. After looking at the Tabs, everything seems OK. Close it and then it shows "Software on this computer is up to date". What ?!?!?!? Here is a print of code I ran.

    Code:
    ~$ cat /etc/apt/sources.list
    
    # See http://help.ubuntu.com/community/UpgradeNotes for how to upgrade to
    # newer versions of the distribution.
    ###### Ubuntu Main Repos

    ###### Ubuntu Update Repos
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-security main restricted
    deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ xenial-updates main restricted

    deb http://archive.ubuntustudio.org/ubuntustudio xenial main
    
    
    ~$ ls /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    Nothing seems out of place! What do you think?

    Thanks!

    Could you post the results of

    Code:
    sudo apt update
    so we can see if there might be more detailed clues there?

    Lets see how this Looks:
    Code:
    nano /etc/resolv.conf
    Paste back please. This could be a cumbersome process so don't get frustrated.

    archive.ubuntustudio.org does not appear to exist.

    How did that come to be in your sources list?

    Allrighty then.
    And I have you tried switching to another or main server for your sources? https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Repositories/Ubuntu
