I accidently removed GnuPG and destroyed my system! Can anyone help me undo the damage I have done?
Since I had GnuPG2 and kept accidentally using gpg instead of gpg2 I thought it would be best to remove gpg and create an alias so I am running the newest version.
sudo apt-get remove gnupg

Now I am in a bad bad place here's a what my new world looks like:
sudo apt-get install apt
The program 'apt-get' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing: sudo apt-get install apt
Is my system hosed? How do I recover from this disaster?
