I am completely new to Linux and until yesterday knew absolutely nothing about it. First of all, I installed Red Hat 9, and everything was grand. Any problems I had with it probably came from me knowing nothing of Linux. So I decided to upgrade to Fedora, and I am typing to you now through Mozilla on the Linux system. So it works that much.
So I went to update to the latest releases using up2date, which gets its information from two channels. Under RH9, only 1 channel was used, and I had no problems with it. But all updates on Fedora are reported as 0KB in size. I thought this might be a small bug and went ahead anyway. For every package I get the same error:
The package ????? does not have a valid GPG signature. It has been tampered with or corrupted. Continue?
I normally use Windows, and this was similar to the installation errors on XP where it warns you that the program/device driver has not been certified, but 99% of the time still works, so I selected "Continue". Then I get the following error:
There was a fatal RPM install error. The message was:
There was an RPM unpack error. Installing the package ??????
What am I doing wrong? Is there any information I should have to help me "get" the Linux concept? I am normally quite technically minded, but I can't seem to figure this out at all.
Thanks for any help
