Error when "sudo apt-get update"
« on: March 24, 2016, 03:17:17 pm »
Hello!

Since some days I get the following error, when I try to update the system:

Code: [Select]
W: gpgv:/var/lib/apt/lists/sparkylinux.org_repo_dists_testing_InRelease: The repository is insufficiently signed by key 9F5CDA37669C216973D771F61CE63BD7D117204E (weak digest)

What is wrong?

I thought about posting this from Debian Planet a few days ago.  It might be

I have not fired up sparky, had to go sit with someone at hospital (I got paid).

peace out,

I got similar "weak digest" messages from synaptic today with respect to the repos of sparky, vivaldi and linuxmint.

The update/upgrade process still works as before but apt (starting with version 1.2.7) now triggers a warning if a repository still uses a key with SHA1 because SHA1 is no longer considered trustworthy.

This is not something we (the users) can change. It has to be done by the repositories' maintainers.

Thanks @ pavroo.
You are quicker than vivaldi or linuxmint  ;)
