Clean install of SMP Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u2 (2017-06-26) x86_64 GNU/Linux on an HP G62-144DX with 4G of memory, 500G HD and Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 330 @ 2.13GHz × 4 Everything working fine. I had updated the apt repository a couple of times to make sure there were no updates so I know it was working before I tried to add non-free.

After choosing "DFSG-compatible Softeare with Non-Free Dependencies (contrib)" in synaptic apt became "unhappy." I have tried looking for answers but am either in the wrong places or it's just me (i.e. Murphy's law).

When apt-get update is called I get the following:

I tried going back by unchecking the option in Synaptic and by copying sources.list.saved to sources.list with no luck.
As far as I can tell apt-key has all the keys that update is griping about. Here are the relavent outputs I can think of:

Sources.list after the fall:

So if I am reading this right apt has all the keys it needs to recognize the distro but refuses to do so.
Can someone tell me what I am missing? I have little hair left and ripping it out a handful at a time has not helped either to answer the question or to improve my appearance.

Added df -h per request

Are you looking for anything besides a full disk? - just curious

  • Please add to the question the output of df -h – Rui F Ribeiro Jul 18 '17 at 17:51

Same issue on my brand new debian 9 installed with the release installer. The issue disappeared after getting the trusted.gpg file out of the way :

sudo mv trusted.gpg trusted.gpg-broken

Afterwards apt seems to be happy. So am I !

  • Yep, the only thing left is validating the skype key and that's not Debian's problem. But how do I report this to Debian, it seems like kind of a big deal especially as they are moving to a more secure system. – Mark Jul 19 '17 at 21:39
