Hi all, This might be a stupid question but I didn’t get any clear answer. I haven’t done any distro upgrades on linux so this is kind of my first time doing it on fedora. I just updated to fedora 36 and its amazing. I used dnf to install a package gnome-music and it did the usual metadata check , after typing yes to install prompt another prompt showed up asking to import GPG keys for Fedora 36 after typing y then it completed the installation process.I maybe overthinking on this one but I am just curious because I saw a redhat article that says that sometimes a package ask to import gpg keys. Is this package specific or system wide after every major system upgrade. I updated the system using Gnome software.
Thanks for joining the discussion group, Max. Welcome.
System updates are required to receive signing keys of higher-versioned releases, per the Fedora update documentation, DNF System Upgrade :: Fedora Docs
Yes, this is normal.
To double-check, here are the versions of the key packages on my system:
$ rpm -qa \*gpg\*keys fedora-gpg-keys-36-1.noarch distribution-gpg-keys-1.69-1.fc36.noarch
More information here on the packages web-app:
Thanks for replying. I thought that gnome-music package was the one needed it do that. I assumed that gnome software already added keys because it updated the system. Again thanks a lot for answering my question.
Thanks Dave for replying. I hope I didn’t waste your time as I am sure you guys are already busy with other post that are having problems that you guys are trying to help. I appreciate it.Thanks again
