I've looked around a lot and can't seem to find what I need. I have a couple repositories I want to add, and avoid the "won't install from here because it is unsigned" error - so I'd like to download a key and install it.

I've tried this:


specifically, where it talks about Release.gpg, but all I see there is gpgv, which seems more of a verification. The repository online lists like this:


This suggestion seems to rely on an *.asc file being present, which apparently is not the case here. How to add a third-party repo. and key in Debian?

I expected this to be all over the web but I seem to be either missing it or not getting it...

PS: This is one of my attempts:

sudo gpgv --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg ftp://mirror.yandex.ru/astra/stable/orel/latest/repository/dists/orel/Release.gpg ftp://mirror.yandex.ru/astra/stable/orel/latest/repository/dists/orel/Release

gpgv: can't open 'ftp://mirror.yandex.ru/astra/stable/orel/latest/repository/dists/orel/Release.gpg': No such file or directory
gpgv: verify signatures failed: No such file or directory

PS2: and another attempt:

sudo apt-key adv ftp://mirror.yandex.ru/astra/stable/orel/latest/repository/dists/orel/Release.gpg

Executing: /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.hffJ18K2Zz/gpg.1.sh ftp://mirror.yandex.ru/astra/stable/orel/latest/repository/dists/orel/Release.gpg
gpg: can't open 'ftp://mirror.yandex.ru/astra/stable/orel/latest/repository/dists/orel/Release.gpg'
  • Hi, yes, I installed both Debian keyrings. Still no luck... – nate Jul 14 '17 at 4:47
  • Sorry, I deleted my comment because I realised it didn't apply. You're trying to install the Astra distribution, correct? The Debian keyrings are for Debian, not Astra. – Faheem Mitha Jul 14 '17 at 5:08
  • Ahhhh yes, for AstraLinux Orel latest. Thought maybe they covered some Debian variants, though I didn't research it. – nate Jul 14 '17 at 5:09
  • The Astra web site is currently not working, but if you have a contact email for them, I suggest you write and ask about their apt key. – Faheem Mitha Jul 14 '17 at 5:48
  • Good idea! I'll do that – nate Jul 14 '17 at 5:58
