slackpkg keeps asking to update pgp


Even when I turn PGP=off ...and I try to install..say firefox or anything:
Code:
No packages match the pattern for install. Try:

        /usr/sbin/slackpkg reinstall|upgrade
This is after uncommenting a server and updating/upgrading slackpkg

You need the GPG key of Slackware Linux Project <security@slackware.com>.
To download and install that key, run:

        # slackpkg update gpg

You can disable GPG checking too, but it is not a good idea.
To disable GPG, edit slackpkg.conf and change the value of the CHECKGPG variable
to off - you can see an example in the original slackpkg.conf.new file distributed
with slackpkg.
I keep getting that

Probably a typo but it's GPG not PGP (different product)

Ok so if you can confirm that you have

CHECKGPG=off

In your slackpkg.conf then it shouldn't even get to this error.

Code:
gpg --list-keys 40102233
Should list the slackware key.

If it's not there you can install it manually with.
Code:
gpg --recv-keys  40102233
