Failed to fetch packages and GPG errors when trying to install Longview

Linode Staff

I'm seeing 'W: Failed to fetch … 403 Forbidden' and 'W: GPG error: … KEYEXPIRED' errors when trying to install Longview using the curl command provided in Manager, and Longview isn't working. How can I get Longview to work?
