Topic: GPG keys problem [SOLVED].

Seems like GPG keys are missing from keyservers, or expired, or just the keyservers are  facing difficulties (which seems to be common nowadays)!   :-(

I was following this guide: https://gparted.org/gpg-verify.php.

Here are my results:

>gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.openpgp.org --recv-key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0
gpg: key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0: no user ID
gpg: Total number processed: 1
>

or

>gpg --keyserver hkp://pgpkeys.mit.edu --recv-key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No data
>

Of course:

>gpg --verify CHECKSUMS.TXT.gpg CHECKSUMS.TXT
gpg: Signature made Τρι 27 Οκτ 2020 07:31:22 πμ EET
gpg:                using RSA key EB1DD5BF6F88820BBCF5356C8E94C9CD163E3FB0
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key
>

After some searching, I found this one:

>gpg --keyserver pool.sks-keyservers.net --recv-key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0
gpg: key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0: 6 signatures not checked due to missing keys
gpg: key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0: public key "Steven Shiau (In Freedom We Trust) <steven@stevenshiau.org>" imported
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:               imported: 1
>

And finally:

>gpg --verify CHECKSUMS.TXT.gpg CHECKSUMS.TXT
gpg: Signature made Τρι 27 Οκτ 2020 07:31:22 πμ EET
gpg:                using RSA key EB1DD5BF6F88820BBCF5356C8E94C9CD163E3FB0
gpg: Good signature from "Steven Shiau (In Freedom We Trust) <steven@stevenshiau.org>" [expired]
gpg:                 aka "Steven Shiau <jhshiau@yahoo.com>" [expired]
gpg:                 aka "Steven Shiau <steven@nchc.org.tw>" [expired]
gpg:                 aka "Steven Shiau <shiau.steven@gmail.com>" [expired]
gpg:                 aka "Steven Shiau <steven@nchc.narl.org.tw>" [expired]
gpg:                 aka "Steven Shiau (Clonezilla project) <steven@clonezilla.org>" [expired]
gpg: Note: This key has expired!
Primary key fingerprint: EB1D D5BF 6F88 820B BCF5  356C 8E94 C9CD 163E 3FB0

OK! Maybe expired, but it's the only one, I found.  :-)
Can you please, check the keys and update if needed?

Bye!!!  :-)

Re: GPG keys problem [SOLVED].

No idea. Maybe it's due to the syncing issue?
As you mentioned, it does exist in some key servers, e.g.,
$ gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0
gpg: key 8E94C9CD163E3FB0: "Steven Shiau (In Freedom We Trust) <steven@stevenshiau.org>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:              unchanged: 1

THANKS Steven!!!  wink

Ubuntu's keyserver, has the right key.
I checked again and everything's fine (and NO expiration messages this time).

EDIT:

I just realized, that there is a similar post a couple of weeks ago.
First of all, Sorry!!!  roll
I didn't see it earlier.

I think the documentation page, needs updating.
Maybe the Ubuntu keyserver should be added - replace, the ones on the documentation page.
No point trying the others and getting wrong or no results.
Bye!!!  cool
