Problem with Fedora updates

I cannot update the updates requested by the operating system, I get the message: Something went wrong.

When I click on ‘More information’ I get the following message:

google-chrome-stable-120.0.6099.216-1.x86_64 package cannot be checked and google-chrome repository has active GPG: /var/cache/PackageKit/39/metadata/google-chrome-39-x86_64/packages/google-chrome-stable-120.0.6099.216-1.x86_64.rpm could not be verified.

I installed Google Chrome from the file installer, that is, I downloaded it from the Google Chrome page itself and then installed it from the store; but I did not download and install it from the Fedora store itself. Do you think this was the problem, or what do you suggest to fix this?

Does dnf update work?

The best way to install Chrome is following this guide: Installing Chromium or Google Chrome browsers :: Fedora Docs

I got dnf update working, I was finally able to update.

I had forgotten that command to update :sweat_smile: Although I have been using Linux for a long time, I am a basic user who almost never uses the terminal to update, but only for specific things.

Although I was able to upgrade, I was struck by the link you shared with me.

Do you recommend doing that installation that way for Chrome? Even so, I was able to update via Terminal.

I don’t think there’s any material difference in the end result. Google’s Chrome package sets up a repo that should be identical to the one that Fedora provides.

For now, I’d just wait and see if the next update succeeds.

If the downloaded rpm from google does set up that repo, as @chrisawi said, the result of the two methods is the same, so no need to perform the steps outlined in Fedora Docs. I wasn’t aware what googles rpm does (because I don’t use Chrome). You are good to go.

To learn more about repos, have a look at /etc/yum.repos.d/

I updated the last updates requested by the operating system and had no problems.

Thank you for taking the time and helping me solve the problem.
