Can Not Update/Upgrade: Warning Pkgs Cannot Be Authenticated


Hi:

MX-18 has been running great on my bf's AMD-64 bit custom built desktop pc since I performed the installation approximately a month ago.

Last Saturday the upgrade failed with a warning and it failed again with the same warning today.

Code:
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated!
   antix-archive-keyring
   antix-libs
   cli-aptix
   cli-installer-antix
   cli-shell-utils
   fbxkb
   fskbsetting
   live-kernel-updater
   live-usb-maker
   partition-info
E: There were unauthenticated packages and -y was used without --allow-unauthenticated

full upgrade complete (or was canceled)

this terminal window can now be closed (press any key to close)
I thought that maybe the mirror wasn't being updated so I changed the mirror to a much closer one to my area. Changing the mirro didn't help and the upgrade failed again.

I also tried going to MX Tools> Fix GPG Keys and all of the repos and keys were good. No problems there.

This is not an area were I've got experience and I'd like to fix my friends MX-18 distro's warning asap.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Are you aware that you need to "update" before you "upgrade"? The update subcommand synchronises your local cache with the mirror and usually ensures that you have the right keys. The upgrade subcommand then copies over and installs the software.

Running the:
"apt-get upgrade --allow-unauthenticated" worked and the 72 pkgs that needed to be upgraded were upgraded. However there were 2 more pkg's after that, that needed upgraded and bash returned the same error again: WARNING: "The following packages cannot be authenticated!"

What fixed the MX Update Manager was to run those 3 commands via the cmd-line that anticapitalista linked in #4 post.

My friends MX Linux Update Manager now works propertly.

sidzen and anticapitalista thank you very much.
