    Default apt-get update issues

    Hi All,

    I have had issues running the apt-get update command for months now!

    It happened on my direct installation on a laptop and in a new installation in a VM.

    As per the post in the FAQ section regarding these types of failures, I have the info below:



    Command: # apt-get update

    error:
    Get:1 SUN Backtrack Linux Repository pwnsauce Release.gpg [489B]
    Get:2 SUN Backtrack Linux Repository pwnsauce Release [9106B]
    Err SUN Backtrack Linux Repository pwnsauce Release

    Fetched 490B in 2s (240B/s)
    Reading package lists... Done
    W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used.GPG error: SUN Backtrack Linux Repository pwnsauce Release: The following signatures were invalid: BADSIG FEF51A0A571327DB BackTrack Repository Administrator <repoadmin@offensive-security.com>

    W: Failed to fetch http://archive.offensive-security.co...nsauce/Release

    W: Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
    W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems


    apt sources.list:

    deb SUN Backtrack Linux Repository pwnsauce main microverse macroverse restricted universe multiverse
    #deb Index of /repotest ./ # BackTrack Devel Repository

    Cheers,
    Big Willy


    Hi all - UPDATE on the issue.
    I found a small list of instructions to help sort the issue out!

    apt-get clean
    cd /var/lib/apt
    mv lists lists.old
    mkdir -p lists/partial
    apt-get clean
    apt-get update
