Unable to update Debian template after installing Syncthing


I’m new to Qubes… I’m new to Linux in general.

I just installed Syncthing to my Debian template. Now my Debian template cannot update. The error message is in relation to the public key for Syncthing being not available for verification.

Can anyone help me solve this please?

Cheers M

I’m guessing you followed these instructions?

If so, you probably didn’t download the pgp key since you need to specify a proxy to make curl work:

sudo curl --proxy --tlsv1.2 --proto =https --max-time 180 -o /usr/share/keyrings/syncthing-archive-keyring.gpg https://syncthing.net/release-key.gpg

Then try running apt update again.

Also, are you using a cacher qube with apt-cacher-ng ?

Thank you. I’ll try that now.

I’m afraid I don’t know what a cacher qube is…

Edit: actually, that didn’t work. the error in terminal was:

curl: (3) URL using bad/illegal format or missing URL

Ok, no need to worry then. I needed to know in order to change the url if you had it.

My mistake, I forgot to add the -o option. It should work now.

Thank you so much! That has worked perfectly. Appreciate this - how nice of you!

No worries, please select my post as answer so the question can be marked as resolved.
