Dear friends:

I am newbie using Fedora. It was going great, when I got a message for update the system I could to do it from terminal with: yum udpate, but recently the system showed me a lot of files to update but it doesn't cause send me this message: The package kdenetwork-kget-4.10.5-1.fc18.x86_64.rpm is not signed.

I use Fedora 18 64bits

Someone can tell me what can I do? I look for a solution on the net, but I failed.

Hola amigo, prueba (try) agregando las llaves actualizadas de Fedora 18

rpm --import

yum -y update

Nota: Estas llaves se actualizan constantemente, asi que te dejo el sitio oficial para reempazar el archivo .txt

Hola David, gracias por tu gentil respuesta. Hice lo que me sugieres pero sigue igual. Habrá alguna manera de actualizar obviando ese paquete? No me gustaría instalar algo que Fedora no confirma. Agradezco tu tiempo.

El problema en si es de donde viene este paquete? para ello necesitamos ver la fuente: yum provides kdenetwork-kget

Para obviar el paquete solamente has lo siguiente, pero todo paquete que dependa de el no lo actualizara: yum -y --exclude=kdenetwork-kget* update

Gracias David, voy a unirme al foro en Google. Apliqué el comando y me arroja este resultado: kdenetwork-kget-4.10.5-1.fc18.x86_64 Repositorio : kde-testing, procedí a desactivar ese repositorio y veré si me actualiza sin problemas. Ahora se ha quedado como congelado en el 58% de la actualización de los repositorios :) Problema solucionado! Gracias! How said marcindulak it was a testing repository. Thank you for your help, I really apreciate it.

The latest release available Sun Jul 21 16:57:37 CEST 2013 in updates is kdenetwork-kget-4.10.4-1.fc18.x86_64, so I guess you have updates-testing repository enabled on your Fedora 18. Look into /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates-testing.repo and check for enabled=1. It's safer to keep updates-testing disabled (enabled=0). I don't know the reason why yum claims the package "is not signed" (it goes fine on my Fedora18/updates-testing), but you can still try to install it with:

yum install kdenetwork-kget --nogpgcheck --enablerepo=updates-testing

yum update # proceed with regular update

Hello Marcindulak: Thank you for your answer. Could be my system become insecure by installing a unsigned package? Just recently I disabled an option call SSD which let another check my PC and I dont want people sniffing into my disks. Thank your time. Greetings.

I see from your comments above that kdenetwork-kget came from kde-testing. I would disable repositories that do not sign packages, and in general stay only with official fedora ones. Adding external repositories increases the chance of broken dependencies.
