What this means is there must be one public key missing and the dam
update fails.


You can find the missing keys on the Internet, but I expect they are
already in your computer.

In a Fedora 7 system, look in your system here:


In there you see keys supplied with the system:

RPM-GPG-KEY              RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-rawhide
RPM-GPG-KEY-adobe-linux  RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-test
RPM-GPG-KEY-beta         RPM-GPG-KEY-livna
RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora       RPM-GPG-KEY-rawhide

You need to do

rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

After that, the yum install will work.

I don't have an F8 system booted up at the current time, but if the
keys are somewhere else, I'm sure you can find them with find (here's
how I found them: "find /etc -name "*RPM*KEY*".  I guess they might be
under /usr/share/doc/ instead of /etc.  On a Scientific Linux 5 system
I'm using now, they are under the doc directory.

What puzzles me is that this key is missing from your rpm database.
If it is not installed, it means you have never ever done a yum
update.  Which seems weird, given how old F8 is and how active you are
in this list.  And, usually yum will ask you if you want to install
the key, and you say yes, and the install proceeds.

Don't complain that pup or some other gui fails.  I've stopped using
them entirely.  Either download the rpms you need and use rpm commands
to install, or run yum from the command line.  It is the only way that
is either sure to work or give you enough information about what's
wrong in order to fix it.

yumex is the only gui RPM program I use anymore.  Sometimes it is
convenient if you need to search for RPMs by keywords..

I have had about 100+ updates to F8 and this is the first time I have had this problem. I can do the
rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora

and will see what happens. If it works I pass it along.


What I get is

[[email protected] ~]# rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora
error: RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora: import read failed(-1).
