apt-get update error


Code:
W: http://security.debian.org/dists/stretch/updates/InRelease: The key(s) in the keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg are ignored as the file is not readable by user '_apt' executing apt-key.
W: http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch-updates/InRelease: The key(s) in the keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg are ignored as the file is not readable by user '_apt' executing apt-key.
W: http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/dists/stretch/Release.gpg: The key(s) in the keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg are ignored as the file is not readable by user '_apt' executing apt-key.
I have tried
Code:
apt-get install --reinstall debian-archive-keyring
apt-get autoclean
apt-get clean
but it didn't help.

Code:
$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID:	Debian
Description:	Debian GNU/Linux 9.4 (stretch)

Codename:	stretch

at first, this is not an error message but a warning (or three).
Please post the exact steps you executed, not only a message.... (which user, which command, full output...).
Also did you check the permissions on that file?

Code:
rm /etc/apt/trusted.gpg

has solved the issue.

So I hope it's correct solution.

If you're working as root, but the keyring is not readable, that means no one can read it. So, have a look at the permissions. I really wonder how it got that way!

I'm sorry the file is deleted.

Maybe 8 --> 9 upgrade ?

sorry to reopen this tread but...
i have 2 diferent systems with the exact same problem, related to this one. In both i installed a debian system stretch with Lxde and gnome...
i tried to add debian multimedia but i keep getting the message saying
"The key(s) in the keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg are ignored as the file is not readable by user '_apt' executing apt-key."
tired of reading and not geting nowhere.
I followed the sugestion on a brazilian forum (iḿ Portuguese...) to remove /etc/apt/trusted.gpg and to run apt-key update...

problem is console gives me the answer :
root@debiansala:/etc/apt# apt-key update
Warning: 'apt-key update' is deprecated and should not be used anymore!
Note: In your distribution this command is a no-op and can therefore be removed safely.

this one i dont see a solution... itś been two months (the system is funcional and i dont use them that often...) and some body else should had the same problem but i cant see the answer...

help apretiated

answering my self...
i fixed some other issue reading the foruns... how to find and add the gpg keys.
apt-get and synaptic give the error but recognise the repository...
i find and extraxct the key "deb-multimedia-keyring_2016.8.1_all.deb" and placed it in the trusted.gpg.d folder...
never the less that behavior should be corrected and still don't know an alternaticve to do it manually...

I haven't heard of the multimedia repo in ages.
Anyway: most recommend very strongly against using it.

This way or that way: might be it should be corrected, but that is not a problem of debian.org, but the multimedia-repo.

you don't need to use apt-get, but simply apt.
