Unable to update repository from Ubuntu 9.10 amd64

The installation contains valid pgp key used for verifing of repository. However, I found it impossible to update the repository information.

The synaptic reports the following:

W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.GPG error: karmic Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG DCF9F87B6DFBCBAE Sun Microsystems, Inc. (xVM VirtualBox archive signing key) <info@…>

W: Failed to fetch

W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Can you please regenerate repository signature?

The repository signature is correct. Does it still fail after doing

apt-get clean
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

The problem was resolved. I wonder what happened, it may be due to the corrupted packages information?

I've seen it several times that at the client side some file was broken. We definitely didn't change anything at the server side...

Frank, I tried this today on my Debian-5.02 server because there are a lot of complaints on the forum and it does fail to down load

I deleted the third party repo and re-entered it as stated on the download page. deb lenny non-free

Attached deb-fail.log is what gets reported

Finally confirmed. This only happens via apt-get install ..., the current workaround is to download and install the package manually. The reason is that apt has normally no support for HTTP redirection -- they added support for it in apt 0.7.21. Ubuntu Karmic still has apt 0.7.20, Lucid has currently 0.7.23 (so redirection works fine with Lucid). We will try to disable redirection for the debian/ directory.

Should be fixed now!

Maybe this is unrelated because it's on 32-bit, but I've been seeing this in Lucid (beta) for several weeks:

Failed to fetch  404  Not found

/etc/apt/sources.list contains:

deb lucid non-free

Sure, Lucid Lynx is not released yet. There will be a package available shortly. Just use karmic in your sources.list for the time being, the karmic package should work fine -- except USB which we are about to fix.
