[Solved] OH2 on Ubuntu 17.10 install problem

Hello, I’m trying to upgrade my OH2.2 installation to 2.3. I had to “force” the Bintray key in to the package manager with --no-check-certificate option

sudo wget -q0 - --no-check-certificate ‘https://bintray.com/user/downloadSubjectPublicKey?username=openhab’ | sudo apt-key add -

But when I run sudo apt-get update
I get these errors.

Obviously I screwed up the installation process, what have I done wrong and how to fix it. Thanks in advance

why?

what error did you get when running the command from the docs?

I got this error “gpg: hittade ingen giltig OpenPGP-data.” translates to gpg: cant find valid OpenPGP-data" without the --no-check-certificate option. Cant say why

You should google this error to fix this general problem on your Linux system
it affects many other packages (not only OH2)
forcing your way through problems like this will only make things worse… you will end up with broken dependencies etc

Ok, I’ll try to google that and solve the problem. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

I had to reinstall the ca-certificates. Don’t know why. But after that I was able to install openhab 2.3 over my 2.2 installation. And it is working :slight_smile:

Could you please post your solution here? How did you reinstall ca-certificates?

in theory, with:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get --reinstall install ca-certificates

Thank you!

As a side note, it also helps to check your system time is correct - that was my issue.
