    sudo aptitude update

    Re: Badsig 40976eaf437d05b5

    Tried both, but did not work for me

    W: GPG error: http://bh.archive.ubuntu.com maverick-updates Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 40976EAF437D05B5 Ubuntu Archive Automatic Signing Key <ftpmaster@ubuntu.com>

    I believe I downloaded and installed Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick and I live in January 2011 but my "About Ubuntu" page says "You are using Ubuntu 11.04 - the Natty Narwhal - released in April 2011 and supported until October 2012"

    Re: Badsig 40976eaf437d05b5

    That's strange because I get the same "about Ubuntu" message although I don't have any GPG or other errors. And "System Manager" says I have Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick installed!

    Guess theres a contradiction somewhere!

    Question Re: Badsig 40976eaf437d05b5

    It worked for me, but the question is why did it happen?
    I haven't "fiddled" with my installation for weeks, so what could cause it?

    This worked for me today, after trying three other suggestions from other threads. Thank you very much!

    So this looks really good except that we are behind a proxy firewall on machines that can only look through a local network to the apt-cacher-ng machine. Do you know where the signature is stored? we can probably copy it over (?)

    Thanks.
