When is this repaired?
Code: Select all
W: Signature by key 1804EE0014AE5656D55BA62C4F7A22B6A744DB59 uses weak digest algorithm (SHA1)
E: Failed to fetch  Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Will be a long minute. Ubuntu / Canonical in their infinite wisdom probably Debian too. has pushed for SHA 512 encryption. If I bump up to 512 old users will get the shaft and no updates the no-split is upraded persay. The Gamers repo has not been done and I wont waste my time uploading 43GB of data until we get both those coming in and I can take care of those prior.

I do not think in the 10+ years building Operating Systems have I had any admin /mod etc. want the job of repository management. It is the worst job in my field. I wrote repostorm for that exact reason. You make a mistake here you bork perhaps millions of computers. I understand why I am your repository manager. When you eliminate human error, you have repostorm ;) Used to be repomaster until they started to take the name via domains.

They do not own the name now. I was happy to let them take it. I still have not unleashed repostorm to the general public. Just so you understand, not a day goes by that I sit in front of my computer that I do not use that tool to build perfection.

I find it ironic as I am building O/S's KeySnatcher takes care of the rest.
