Bag pgp signature installing software

I tried installing XtrackCAD but keep getting "Bad pgp signature"

Source download: http://www.xtrkcad.org/Wikka/CurrentRelease

Linux Fedora RPM (64 Bit)

This is the first time I've tried installing this software on Korora.

I tried one version older, 4.3, but had the same problem. I posted on the xtrackcad users group for help but also wanted to post here in case someone can help.

I'm a new user to Korora, but I had been using Linux Mint for several years without this problem.

PS: I just upgrade to Korora 26 hoping it might solve the problem but it did not.

I just installed it using the 64 bit RPM (xtrkcad-setup-5.1.0-1.x86_64.rpm) with a MD5 hash of fa4f7eb94798f2cdfefb185267b083b1 and it ran fine. Maybe you have a bad download? See if you can download and compare the MD5 hash with what I got. I didn't see the hash anyware listed, I just downloaded it then calculated the MD5 hash. If you compare this to what i have that will tell you if download is corrupt or not. Where are you getting the Bad pgp signature error? Is it after you ran it or during the install? Also, I ended up install using the GUI tool dnfdragora since i have it installed. I just downloaded the package, right click, installed with dnfdragora.
Maybe this helps, or puts you down the right track. We might be able to tell more if you provide more info. Error location, are using wayland or x11, desktop environment (gnome, kde, ect.)?

EDIT: I also installed using gnome software center with the downloaded rpm file, and it installed fine as well.

I updated your post to make the link work. See here for more information on engage syntax.

My MD5 has exact matches.

Here is my system info: Sorry, I couldn't figure out how to insert an image from drop box, so here's a link instead:

I get the error after installation is complete: https://www.dropbox.com/s/88kgl2qzgywu2uk/bad%20gpg.jpg

I tried downloading and running install and same error.

I'm unfamiliar with KDE, but it appears to possibly be related to a bug in KDE discover. I did a quick google search, and it looks like when using KDE discover that there are some issues installing from some third party RPM packages. You might want to try installing it from the command line. This would give you more information. I'm assuming you are a little familiar with the terminal. Open up a terminal, navigate to the location of your downloaded RPM file, then run the dnf install command. You can use the "Tab" key to autocomplete. Capitalization makes a difference in files names. You can use "cd andnameofdirectory" Below is an example assuming it is saved to your downloads directory and terminal opens up in your home directory. This will give more info if the install fails, if it succeeds, ect. You probably don't need this much detail since you mention you performed an upgrade, but I'm not entirely sure how you did the upgrade, so i'm going with the assumption you have very littler terminal experience.... but some. :)

Complete!

I hope this helps. I'm sure I went overkill with the above example and all you needed was the dnf install command. Let us know what error messages you get when install this way. I'm not sure how you update your system, but you might want to also read up in the wiki on the best ways to update. I use gnome, and I sometimes run into issues with it. When you update from the command line, you get to see what fails, what works, and any other nice messages.

WOOT! it worked! thank you!

to answer the updates question I haven't been using terminal, I've been using the software manager "discover" when there's updates available I get a notification and I click apply.

Anyway, there seems to be a lot to learn about Fedora/Korora over Ubuntu/Mint

Glad it worked. I think your issue was related more to KDE and the KDE discover application manager than with Fedora/Korora. But i think I did read that there was a bug and someone submitted a patch, I'm just not sure if it was accepted and when it will make its way to us. Whenever i have an issue with a graphical application (especially when installing), I'll use the command line so i can get some more input. Ubuntu uses apt-get and fedora uses dnf. Similar but different. So if you ever did anything from the command line in ubuntu, you probably used apt-get command.
I made the comment about updating from the command line because i've had issues updating sometimes from Gnome Software, so it helps to be familiar with it. There is a link under support>documentation>updating>updating via command line.

Glad it worked, and hope your Korora experience goes smoothly.

We always recommend using the command line rather than the included graphical package manager. I've never seen one of those be completely stable. If you do use them and have issues run a test on the command line to confirm the issue.
