Hi all,

This issue seems to be created by 'synaptic'.

If you you 'apt' in the terminal, you will be fine.

If you use 'software-properties-gtk' to adjust repositories, you will
be fine.

The issue is created if you run 'synaptic' and then adjust
repositories via 'Settings -> Repositories. A soon as you do this a
file '/etc/apt/trusted.gpg' is created and it is this that is throwing
everything off.


philwyett@ks-skywalker:~$ synaptic-pkexec 
ERROR:root:Cannot import UbuntuDrivers: No module named
gpg: keybox '/etc/apt/trusted.gpg' created
ERROR:root:Cannot import UbuntuDrivers: No module named
gpg: keybox '/etc/apt/trusted.gpg' created

It is the last line that is the issue. If you run 'software-
properties-gtk' and adjust repositories, the file is not created.

Quick remedy:

sudo rm -f /etc/apt/trusted.gpg

Now run 'synaptic' or 'apt' as usual. If you run 'synaptic', do not
use the menu option 'Settings -> Repositories.

This could probably do with a bug raising.
