I'm using sarge as it says under my name :P (with 2.6.7 kernel). Everytime i log on in the morning i do a routinely apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, that never fails.
I'm using the default testing / release / stable sources.
The packages i want to download are all upgrades for my current software and the error is:
Preconfiguring packages ...
Authenticating /var/cache/apt/archives/grep_2.5.1.ds1-3.2_i386.deb ...
debsig: Origin Signature check failed. This deb might not be signed.
dpkg: error processing /var/cache/apt/archives/grep_2.5.1.ds1-3.2_i386.deb (--unpack):
Verification on package /var/cache/apt/archives/grep_2.5.1.ds1-3.2_i386.deb failed!
Errors were encountered while processing:
I have tried -f which technically should override verification, but it doesnt do anything, just give me the same error. It gives me exactly the same error for every thing im trying to update (which now sums up to some 30-40 files [87MB]). I have also tried apt-get clean && apt-get upgrade. Nothing has seemed to work. I am wondering if it is possible to reinstall apt-get, but since apt-get is a frontend how would i have to go about this? Thanks
