    Post apt-get update GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net intrepid Release

    While updating apt-get update I was getting following error

    : GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net intrepid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY CB2F6C86F77B1CA9

    Solution:
    Add the GPG signing key:
    wget http://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/public.gpg
    sudo apt-key add public.gpg

    now run apt-get update

    Thanks. I got the same error even when I added the gpg key through Synaptic. Now it works.

    Hey secure_it

    It appears that the bandwidth has been oversubscribed for this link :

    hxxp://apt.pearsoncomputing.net/public.gpg

    I managed to find the key in the google cache and added it but I still cannot update do you know of a fix for this ?

    Hi secure_it it's now OK, but yesterday I couldn't download the key as the ISP were reporting that the max bandwidth had been reached for the site.

    All looks OK now though.

    Thanks alot for the reply.

    Lightbulb Another way to do it

    Another way to add the key.

    Code:
    gpg --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv CB2F6C86F77B1CA9
    gpg --export --armor CB2F6C86F77B1CA9 | apt-key add -

    Default another simpler method to add missing pub-key

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com {ppa fingerprint you just got the error for}

    Hi,

    I have tried this method and i get an error that the keyserver is unavailable?

    Any help appreciated, i trawled the web but nothing is working - Fast-track updates are fine and i do have a working net connection!

    Thanks, the first method did not fix it, but this did.
