    Re: Apt-key deprecated

    From its manual page:
    Use of apt-key is deprecated, except for the use of apt-key del in maintainer scripts to remove existing keys from the main keyring. If such usage of apt-key is desired the additional installation of the GNU Privacy Guard suite (packaged in gnupg) is required.

    apt-key(8) will last be available in Debian 11 and Ubuntu 22.04.
    What you get is not an error, it's a warning.

    It also looks like you forgot a dash:
    Code:
    wget -q http://www.webmin.com/jcameron-key.asc -O- | apt-key add -

    Hi there, thanks for your reply

    When I typed the correction in, it now comes up with that the above can only be used by @root, which I got into the root by using su

    Only to see that no valid PGP is found in the warning or error message
    Same warning that the apt-key is deprecated

    Warning also said that the keyring has to be managed by the files in trusted.gpg.d

    There are two files in that folder

    Please explain this - what do you mean, where did Teamviewer come from?
    Supermicro Server :: Atom C3558 (4) @ 2.2 GHz :: 32 GB DDR4-2400 :: 512 GB NVMe :: 4x 2 TB SSD @ RAID-Z :: 1x Raspberry Pi 4 Server

    Scripts: directory-tools | rsync-backup | add-apt-key

    So what version and kernel are you running? You never clarified.

    That question is about the same issue but related to a different certificate of a different software. The outlined method is what you should follow, NOT download the Teamviewer's one and rename it.

    I did follow the method with the Teamviewer's first, but that didn't anything
