Debian/Ubuntu APT error: NO_PUBKEY A2F683C52980AECF

Postby vBen » 30. Apr 2016, 09:11

As of today I (and a few others) receive the following APT error on trying to check for new updates on http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Err:1 http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian xenial InRelease
  The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A2F683C52980AECF


Obviously the signing key has changed. I see there's a new oracle_vbox_2016.asc file here: http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian (the last modified date is 28-Apr-2016). Is it legit?

If yes, the error can be easily fixed:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo su -c 'wget -q -O- http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian/oracle_vbox_2016.asc | apt-key add -'


Can anybody confirm that the new key is legit? I was not able to proof any signatures nor find it on the commong key servers?
