gpg: invalid key resource URL '/tmp/apt-key-gpghome.NKj0knFNmW/home:stevenpusser.asc.gpg' why is this showing up when i try to install my vpn?
I want to completely remove stevenpusser repository and other files like this gpg and reinstall it again can you provide the ubuntu version of the uninstall, any help?

Note: I managed to uninstall palemoon just fine and deleting the repository in the software and updates but the gpg is still there?

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-key FDC247B7

It's in your /tmp folder...does it go away by itself after a reboot?

If not, you'll have to learn how to remove a key using apt-key.

Reboot.
Or rename this file:

Code: Select all

sudo mv -v /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.NKj0knFNmW/home:stevenpusser.asc.gpg /tmp/apt-key-gpghome.NKj0knFNmW/stevenpusser.asc.gpg
and try again.


This problem might be related to:

There is a bug regarding to the OBS instructions.
(is for Linux Mint, but applies to Ubuntu as well)
If you run apt-key list after running the command from above comment (also on Ubuntu 20.04) it doesn't list the added keyfile. Removing ':' from the filename of the keyfile in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ makes it work (apt-key list and adding PPAs). I can't say why Ubuntu's add-apt-repository allows for ':' in filenames in /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/ while standard APT commands like apt-key don't. OBS should probably not instruct to use ':' in filenames if standard APT commands don't support that.

Try:

Code: Select all

wget -nv https://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:stevenpusser/xUbuntu_20.04/Release.key -O - | sudo apt-key add -

Code: Select all

sudo apt update
[edit]
The above is for adding the key properly; if you want it deleted:
List your keys with:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key list
To delete stevenpusser's repo key:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-key del "F961 1EC6 ADCF DD30 3362  217A 0FAD 31CA 8719 FCE4"
