You have definitely messed up the keychain somehow, you can re-add the key specifically by following instructions which i found by googling (ducking) “(name of keyserver here) recv keys debian command”

This is what you get when you edit the apt file by hand! @no1

NEVER DO THAT! unless you know for sure that the distribution handles packages from external sources properly

Remember to use sudo parrot-upgrade to CORRECTLY update

Where did you read about the parrot-upgrade command? I’ve always read to use dust-upgrade?

Nah Bro, Dust upgrade is for n00bz. I use gun-upgrade in Russia, so I go from a pistol to a tank in under 5 minutes :heavy_check_mark::heavy_check_mark::heavy_check_mark:

Top kek I thought You where joking and spelled dist-upgrade as dust-upgrade :joy: :grinning:

Damn autocorrect keyboards…

hahahah :joy: all good :smiley:

Woah you’re fast

Just to be clear here, parrot-upgrade is the same as full-upgrade or dist-upgrade. They are the same from what I have been told.

sudo apt dist-upgrade and sudo apt full-upgrade are direct apt commands that perform a full upgrade based on the latest index available

i additionally made an apt wrapper to automatically launch the update, a bunch of dpkg fixes and a dist-upgrade automatically and in a non-interactive and 100% automatic way

this wrapper can be launched with parrot-upgrade, dist-upgrade and full-upgrade. not apt -upgrade but directly that -upgrade without apt

please keep it in mind when helping people here in the forum as it is a pretty handy way to let users upgrade the system the proper way
