Ubuntu: Clearing GPG -- BADSIG Errors During Update

Bill Malchisky    

In updating my Ubuntu LTS host OS caused me to receive several GPG BADSIG errors, visually captured in the following Update Manager error message.

Image:Ubuntu: Clearing GPG -- BADSIG Errors During Update

You can see the errors more closely via a terminal window.

malchw@san-domino:~$ sudo apt-get update


W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error:
http://extras.ubuntu.com precise Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG 16126D3A3E5C1192 Ubuntu Extras Archive Automatic Signing Key

W: GPG error:
http://ppa.launchpad.net precise Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG B22A95F88110A93A Launchpad PPA for Bumlebee Project

Two ways to resolve -- persistent and the brute force methods. I'll demonstrate the former first, then the latter for a stubborn error.


Persistent Solution

Step 0 -- malchw@san-domino:~$ sudo apt-get clean
Step 1 Combo -- malchw@san-domino:~$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

This was enough to get me to update my files sans issue, but the BADSIG errors remained.

The following packages have been kept back:

linux-image-generic

The following packages will be upgraded:

apparmor apport apport-gtk dh-apparmor flashplugin-installer

gnome-control-center gnome-control-center-data google-chrome-stable

icedtea-6-jre-cacao icedtea-6-jre-jamvm icedtea-7-jre-jamvm krb5-locales

libavcodec-extra-53 libavformat53 libavutil-extra-51 libc-bin libc-dev-bin

libc6 libc6:i386 libc6-dev libc6-i386 libgnome-control-center1

libgssapi-krb5-2 libgssapi-krb5-2:i386 libjs-jquery libk5crypto3

libk5crypto3:i386 libkrb5-3 libkrb5-3:i386 libkrb5support0

libkrb5support0:i386 libpostproc52 libswscale2 linux-libc-dev

multiarch-support openjdk-6-jre openjdk-6-jre-headless openjdk-6-jre-lib

openjdk-7-jre openjdk-7-jre-headless postfix python-apport

python-problem-report

43 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 1 not upgraded.

Need to get 158 MB of archives.

After this operation, 4,047 kB of additional disk space will be used.

Do you want to continue [Y/n]? Y


Though pleased to have the long list of updated applications completed, I wanted to remove the errors. Onward to step two.
Wanting to rule out any caching issues for installed packages, I removed that from the permutation list.

Step 2 -- malchw@san-domino:~$ sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::http::No-Cache=True
Next, run Step 1 Combo, to see if things improve. For me, I needed to continue troubleshooting.

Thanks to AskUbuntu for the next command.
Step 3 -- malchw@san-domino:~$ sudo apt-get update -o Acquire::BrokenProxy=true
Then run Step 1 Combo.

If the command comes back sans error(s), then you are finished. Else, time for more drastic actions.


Brute Force Solution

The solution depicted below is listed on over three sites sites, thus I am unable to provide an accurate attribution.

malchw@san-domino:~$ sudo apt-get clean
malchw@san-domino:~$ cd /var/lib/apt
malchw@san-domino:/var/lib/apt$ sudo mv lists lists.old
malchw@san-domino:/var/lib/apt$ sudo mkdir -p lists/partial
malchw@san-domino:/var/lib/apt$ sudo apt-get clean
malchw@san-domino:/var/lib/apt$ sudo apt-get update

Reading package lists... Done


Running the clean returned no results which is normal, but the update here, proved rewarding: came back error free. So, if the persistent approach does not clear your BADSIG error(s), then the brute force option is your best bet.

Good luck.

IBM Domino and Docker Support Announced
Wed, Aug 16th 2017 2:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
During Barry Rosen's Future directions on Notes/Domino session and again during our Linuxfest DC session last week at MWLUG, IBM announced that they will support Domino on Docker with Domino 9.0.1 FP10. Originally, this support would be announced in 2018, but due to the success of the IBM Application Insights Survey announced at Engage, IBM changed their task priorities and accelerated Docker support based upon your input. FP10 is scheduled to be released by EOY 2017. The next question is,

Attention IBM Customers and BPs, Be Heard! New IBM Notes/Domino Application Survey
Tue, Aug 15th 2017 2:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
After the success of the first IBM survey announced at our IBM Engage session in May (see link to post)---which helped to re-prioritize new capabilities like Docker---Barry Rosen announced a new survey at MWLUG. I completed it and am pleased with this survey's focus on APIs, app modernization, along with creating a new feeling that IBM is serious about Domino as an application development platform. The first survey results really had an impact and moved up significantly Docker support (more

IBM Think 2018 Session Abstract Submission Date Announced
Mon, Aug 14th 2017 2:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
IBM announced that commencing on 21 Aug 2017, you can submit abstracts for IBM Think 2018. As of this writing, there does not appear to be information on session tracks, other than a pop-up informing prospective presenters to be creative. As I've watched the conference site frequently over the past few weeks, no additional information being available on tracks, implies to me we will learn this on Monday, 21 Aug. Thus, if you are considering submitting a session, you can start thinking about wha

"As We Age, Don’t Give Up. Keep Doing." And More Wisdom from George Jedenoff’s "The Powder Philosophy"
Sat, Jul 1st 2017 3:40a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Well, I inadvertently held this post, so let's publish it now. In early 2016---in his then 56th consecutive year of skiing at Alta and Snowbird in Utah---Mr. George Jedenoff at the age of 98 took a few minutes to discuss his Powder Philosophy. A positive uplifting message that will leave you with a smile. Worth a few minutes to view and learn a bit from his years of wisdom. He still rips groomers and fresh powder, while also enjoying tree skiing--again at 98 years old. Stay healthy, believe

Do You Have An Opinion on the Domino Application Platform Direction? Read This.
Thu, May 18th 2017 6:15a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
As Barry Rosen mentioned during our Engage session last week, ICS Offering Management is seeking feedback around the Domino application platform. This opportunity is significant enough that I felt it appropriate to author a separate post. Currently, IBM is looking for feedback in the areas of APIs, XPages, Domino on Bluemix, Docker, and well, anything else you want to add in the development space. I took the survey and found it to be straight forward with plenty of opportunity to provide you

"Why the Largest Companies in the World Count on Linux Servers"
Tue, May 9th 2017 3:00a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
I read this morning a great piece in Linux Journal by Petros Koutoupis. The author's name being new to me, I read the article with an open mind. What I found is this introductory level article offered a decent dissection of this important topic. As I've covered over the years in my Lotus on Linux Report presentation series, more companies outside of Microsoft use Linux for their edge servers than any other operating system. That data point continues to this day. Additionally, despite recent de

This year at Engage in Antwerp, Belgium, I am speaking with Barry Rosen of IBM and Daniel Nash. We are covering all things ICS related on Linux. Happy to have the opportunity to present with both Barry and Daniel on such a topic. A lot has changed in the past six months with IBM's support for Linux. This is the session to learn about those changes and provide input directly to IBM. Looking forward to a great discussion and learning experience. See you on Monday! Date: Monday, May 8 Time: 11
