Hello to the community,

At first, I am sorry in advance if my English is not as good as I would like. This isn't my native language.

I recently turn my computer into Debian. It work well, but there is just one little problem with repository keyring.
When I launch a “sudo apt-get update” command, I always have the message
Code: Select all
W: The key(s) in the keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg are ignored as the file is not readable by user '_apt' executing apt-key.

Here I put ... /InRelease, but it happen with all my repositories.

So, I changed the rights of trusted.gpg. Only the root was allowed to read an write it. Now everybody can read it.
The message changed for :
Code: Select all
W: Impossible to get  The following signatures haven't been verified because the public key isn't available  : NO_PUBKEY 8B48AD6246925553 NO_PUBKEY 7638D0442B90D010 NO_PUBKEY EF0F382A1A7B6500 [retranslated to English, the original message can be slightly different]

Thank for your help.

your english is fine.

the warning is just a warning and as a newbie i wouldn't try to fix what isn't broken.

anyhow, there's a rather recent forum thread about that exact message. try to find it!

Yes, but it like my OS to look clean.
I have to admit, I searched on Qwant and Google, but not on the forum. So they just deleted the gpg file. By security I only renamed it “*.old”.
Now, the main repositories work well. I still have the message for third-parties repositories.
