I'm using Centos 6.5 and when I want to install packages from yum I get this error:

GPG key retrieval failed: [Errno 14] Could not open/read file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

How can I fix this?

This error happens because you have some YUM repository configuration in /etc/yum.repos.d/ that lists a GPG key like this:

gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

This configuration is telling YUM that the GPG key for the repository exists on disk. The error you get from YUM is YUM letting you know that it couldn't find the GPG key at the path /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

So, by manually writing the GPG key to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias like you did, YUM was then able to find the key at that path.

Alternatively, you could have set gpgkey to the URL of the key, like this:

gpgkey=http://springdale.math.ias.edu/data/puias/6/x86_64/os/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

in you repository configuration.

GPG and YUM/RPM can be quite tricky. If you are curious about how more of the internals work, check out this blog post.

If you trust the repo, you can simply edit the file /etc/yum.repos.d/mysql-community.repo and disable the gpgcheck

[mysql57-community]
name=MySQL 5.7 Community Server
baseurl=http://repo.mysql.com/yum/mysql-5.7-community/el/6/$basearch/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0
1

This worked for me: Go to /etc/pki/rpm-gpg directory and download the RPM-GPG-KEY-puias from http://springdale.math.ias.edu/data/puias/6/x86_64/os/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias :

su - root
cd /etc/pki/rpm-gpg
wget http://springdale.math.ias.edu/data/puias/6/x86_64/os/RPM-GPG-KEY-puias

By the way, I appreciate if someone explains the issue more.

This issue occurs when you try to install Docker on CentOS using the standard installation guide available on the Official Website

In the Step 3 change the baseurl and gpgkey URL from https to http and it works, example below

$ sudo tee /etc/yum.repos.d/docker.repo <<-'EOF'
[dockerrepo]
name=Docker Repository
baseurl=**http**://yum.dockerproject.org/repo/main/centos/$releasever/
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=**http**://yum.dockerproject.org/gpg
EOF
0

For me, the solution that worked are:

sudo vim URPMS-GPG-PUBLICKEY-Fedora-24

I am not sure what of the two files are the correct name. I make the two for instance.

In the content copy paste the content of:
https://github.com/UnitedRPMs/unitedrpms.github.io/blob/master/URPMS-GPG-PUBLICKEY-Fedora-24

and that works fine!

You can also disable gpg check without editing repo file with this command :
yum install --nogpgcheck your_package
