MEGAsync for Linux - Signature Expiry Dust-Up - 30 JUL 2019
« on: August 05, 2019, 09:40:10 pm »
Here's an interesting one, for Peppermint Mega users...

Quote from: Mega for Business
This blog post is only relevant to Linux users who had MEGAsync installed prior to August 1st.

SOURCE: https://mega.nz/blog_55

I noticed that my Megasync pubkey disappeared today, when I was trying to do an incremental Peppermint 9 update.  :-\

Personally, I prefer to update Megasync via Synaptic, using Mega's repo: https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/

I've been running ver 18.04 for awhile now: https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_18.04/

Since I had to reinstall the pubkey, anyway, I decided to upgrade => ver 18.10: https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_18.10/

Here's the code I used in CLI to reinstall the pubkey, so I could do the upgrade:

Code: [Select]
╭─vindsl@Boogaloo-6 ~ 
╰─$ wget -q -O - https://mega.nz/linux/MEGAsync/xUbuntu_18.10/Release.key | sudo apt-key add -

Once the new pubkey was reinstalled, I updated the source in Synaptic (a pic is worth 1000 words):





I reloaded the package info in Synaptic, did a Smart Upgrade, and bada bing, bada boom  8)

It wasn't until I was done installing, and testing, the new ver that I ran across Mega's blog post. Reading through it, I guess it would work, but... I'm a lazy, oldskool, Synaptic/mintUpdate kinda guy - you know?

So, if you installed Megasync prior to August 1st, 2019, and your pubkey just disappeared, take your pick...

Seems a common thing for some devs not to keep their key updated and in sync with their software :)

Now I've said that, you can bet I'll forget at some point too :))

I'm having to individually reinstall the pubkey on all of my machines, as I do weekly updates.

Here's the latest - my 32bit P9 powered Dell Dimension 3000 doorstop:





I must say; the Megasync gui is looking much nicer, these days, on all of my Peppermint installs.

I wonder if Graeme got the Mega gui problems ironed out on his machine(s).
