Unable to install new packages using apt-get on Ubuntu 12.04

Hello All,

Unable to install new packages on Ubuntu 12.04, there is an error related to 'gpg'. Executed 'Update Manager' (installed all updates) but still the problem persists, following is the error when I tried to install Oracl JDK 7

Please help me out, thanks in advance.

Thats not 'unable to install new packages on 12.04', its just one PPA that is broken.

Update Friday 13th January 2012

My Java PPA has been disabled by Canonical, possibly because they violate the Ubuntu CoC and PPA terms of use, as Jef Spaleta noted in the comments below, although I’ve had no communication from Canonical at this time. I’m preparing an alternative solution, for those of you who need Sun Java 6, that doesn’t violate and copyrights, CoCs or terms of use. A new blog post will be made when that alternate solution is available.


apt+add+repository, apt-get update, debian, gpg, ubuntu
