Exclamation Slackpkg wrong gpg signature on packages

Hello everyone,

I did a quick slackpkg update and upgrade-all today, on a slackware64-current box, and it seems some packages have the wrong gpg signature ?

WARNING!        WARNING!        WARNING!        WARNING!        WARNING!
One or more errors occurred while slackpkg was running:

Running upgrade-all again provides:
~# slackpkg upgrade-all

You need the GPG key of Slackware Linux Project <>.
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
file distributed with slackpkg.
I've tried multiple mirrors for -current, such as / / . I'm hitting the same gpg errors on all of them.

I have ran slackpkg update every time I changed the mirror, the Changelog is the same on all of them, but the CHECKSUMS.md5 seems to be signed with another gpg:

                ERROR: Verification of the  gpg signature on CHECKSUMS.md5
                       failed! This could mean that the file is out of date
                       or has been tampered with.
Anyone else hit this bump today ?

Thank you!

Best regards!

Is your gpg running ok?

I had a similar problem and I found that I didn't have installed "a/eudev".

Manually upgrade aaa_elflibs, then use upgradepkg --reinstall --install-new a/eudev and a/libgudev, and all should be fine.
