Bad signature on Focal img, nanopiM4-V2


Recommended Posts

I cannot verify a gpg signature for your Focal image. It could be my error, of course. But for Buster, all works perfectly by the same methods.

 

Something about the Focal download is different and undocumented, or something is just plain wrong. (Buster and Focal are zipped with different programs. What's up with that?)

 

Yesterday, attempting to verify the Focal image from the main download by similar steps led to a runaway output (symbols, code) in terminal. That scared me. I shut down the virtual machine, then deleted it.

 

Tried again today (below). All done in a fresh virtual machine. Files for checking (.asc, .img) downloaded by wget from links at base of Downloads page.

 

Public key downloaded according to your webpage https://docs.armbian.com/User-Guide_Getting-Started/#how-to-check-download-authenticity.

 

1. Download from Denmark mirror:

We are changing docs about that ... not finished yet, but you can find some clues. Also Focal images - you should not fail to see the warning - are corrupted.
