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.

Linuxfest at IBM Connect 2017
Sat, Feb 18th 2017 10:54p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Hi Everyone! Just a quick update on Linuxfest... As I've been involved since Lotusphere 2010 offering the first two Linux Installfests with Joe Litton, and co-offered Linuxfest at Lotusphere, Connect, and ConnectED ever since, I wanted to take a moment and provide a quick update. Wes Morgan and I had a few conversations on this year's event and the new city. We both concluded with the new development schedule within IBM, the we should skip a year. Thus, Linuxfest VIII will be delayed a y

Come to IBM Connect 2017 and See Me Speak in the Developer’s Track!
Thu, Feb 16th 2017 7:10p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Yes, for the first time, I'm speaking in the Development, Design and Tools track. A bit nervous and excited simultaneously. A new audience for me! Fortunately, I'll be co-presenting with Serdar Basegmez to ensure that everyone in the audience will receive quality information from multiple perspectives. Looking forward to attending IBM Connect 2017. See you in San Francisco! Back from the Dead: W/hen Bad Code Kills a Good Server Session link Calendar File: If you never sat-in on a

Hi Everyone and Happy New Year to all of you. Best of luck in the new year. I have a couple of posts for IBM Connect in the works. Lets commence new year with a new discount. As an IBM Champion for 2017, IBM is allowing us to offer $100 discounts to friends who may be interested in attending. If you are on the fence, know that the session list is attractive with over 200 being offered. Success stories from customers will be on display, along with the technical labs returning as well. Thus, you c

Notes Domino Templates Get Slated for an Update. Here’s the Roadmap
Mon, Oct 3rd 2016 2:05a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
This is the first of two roadmap posts I authored for release this week. Beyond my post last month where I covered lightly that templates would be upgraded, Barry Rosen provided an updated roadmap with two slides covering just Notes Domino Templates. For simplicity, I copy-pasted the prose from the first slide to make it searchable, and appended the time table slide for the second. Nice to see some progress here too. Nice to see that they are filling in the hole created previously from multiple

Staying at The Top of Google Searches for Smart Phones
Thu, Sep 29th 2016 2:10a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Although quality web developers have known for a while, Google wants you to be mobile friendly. Thus, if you want to stay at the top of Google web searches when the customer uses a smart phone, then your web site must display well on mobile phones. If not, Google will lower your weighting and you'll suddenly show farther down the list versus when the same search is performed on a desktop. But never fear, Google offers a free tool to check your site. As I thought this tool is handy, I wanted

Awesome Linux Reference Sheets for Developers (and Administrators)
Tue, Sep 27th 2016 2:03p   Bill Malchisky Jr.
A blog post for developers? Yes! Though it is not my first and will not be my last, it has been awhile. As an admin, this reference sheet is also helpful. I learned of a great Vim (vi Improved) reference sheet recently. There is a lot of information on a single sheet of paper, organized quite well and easy to use. If you need a handy reference sheet for vi commands... this is a good one to review. Although it works great in color, but he also offers a gray scale version and one for those with re

IMSMO 2.0 (Project Hawthorn) Expands Client Offerings, Crash Avoidance Tip, and an Updated Schema
Mon, Sep 26th 2016 3:17a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
On Thursday, 22 September, IBM Social Business Community Call where Luis Guirigay, Barry Rosen, and Scott Vrusho provided a quality session on IMSMO 2.0, IBM re-announced to a larger international audience new support for Outlook 2010 and 2016. This is exciting news to hear. At ICON US in May, Luis Guirigay stated that the new expanded client support would happen this year and at MWLUG 2016, IBM officially made the announcement--keeping their promise. In my working with the product over the past

IBM Verse On-premises Third Post: Updated Schema, New Features
Thu, Sep 22nd 2016 3:16a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Preface In my previous two blog posts pertaining to Verse On-premises (VOP), please note that a few of the items below were covered here previously. This serves as a metric to ascertain what key items are likely to remain. As cited here on July 18, 2016, IBM is fully committed to and on-track to make a year-end release for this product. IBM is discussing a lot of new VOP items at events in multiple cities/countries; for example MWLUG in Austin, TX. Much of what I reported on August 3, 2016 rema

A Conversation with Barry Rosen, at IBM: Part II
Wed, Sep 21st 2016 2:01a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
Below is the completion of my interview with Barry Rosen, IBM Offering Manager for ICS. Enjoy! Notes 9.0.2 and Feature Packs * As indicated in the slide yesterday, the entire feature set of 9.0.2 will not be released into one Feature Pack (FP), but over four. Yes, the next four FPs will introduce what 9.0.2 would have offered. For some, this may be an eternity. Here is how I look at it: If we waited for 9.0.2 to actually be released, we would be looking at a late Q2 '17 release date at th

A Conversation with Barry Rosen, at IBM: Part I
Tue, Sep 20th 2016 2:02a   Bill Malchisky Jr.
During ICON UK 2016 in London, I took some time to talk with the IBM Offering Manager for ICS covering IBM Notes, Domino, Verse on Premises, and Sametime, Barry Rosen. Our initial Q&A turned into about a 30 minute dialogue, which I found quite informative. With his permission, I am posting the more interesting parts of our conversation. Acknowledging Reality To Reset the Norm IBM recognizes --- as do their customers and BPs --- that over the previous three years, they became a rudder
