I'm trying to add a kubernetes repo to my Amazon Linux 2 instance and struggle with automatically adding GPG keys.

This is my /etc/yum.repos.d/kubernetes.repo...

[kubernetes]
name=Kubernetes
baseurl=https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/repos/kubernetes-el7-x86_64
enabled=1
gpgcheck=1
repo_gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/doc/yum-key.gpg
       https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/doc/rpm-package-key.gpg

I then try to import the GPG keys:


~ # wget https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/doc/yum-key.gpg \
         https://packages.cloud.google.com/yum/doc/rpm-package-key.gpg

~ # rpm --import *.gpg

However when I run any yum command it still doesn't know the keys:

# yum upgrade -y

Even if I try to accept them manually it still doesn't work.

How can I add the key so that YUM accepts it?

This is a known issue (see https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/issues/60134). Work around it by disabling GPG checks: set repo_gpgcheck=0 in /etc/yum.repos.d/kubernetes.repo.

Credits to drakedevel, who writes:

I think this is due to Amazon Linux 2 shipping an old version of GnuPG, and something about the repomd.xml.asc signature requires a newer version.

GnuPG 2.0.22 outright rejects the signature on the repository metadata with assuming bad signature from key BA07F4FB due to an unknown critical bit. I haven't been able to figure out what critical bit it's referring to -- there don't appear to be any on the signature or key -- but whatever GnuPG 2.0.22 is upset about is most likely the root cause.

This only affects the repomd signature, so there's zero reason to disable gpgcheck as several others have suggested. Disabling repo_gpgcheck is sufficient and preserves package signature verification (although it's still not an ideal workaround...)
