LongView install trouble on Debian buster
Trying to install LongView from Linode Manager - in Debian Buster
Automatic process fails:
curl -s https://lv.linode.com/***ID copied from Linode Manager*** | sudo bash Invalid Installer Session Please see the Longview details page to start a new session OR if you would like to install Longview manually please see: https://linode.com/docs/platform/longview/longview/#manual-installation-with-yum-or-apt
OK, followed these steps from the manual:
1 - Created /etc/linode
2 - Created /etc/linode/longview.key
3 - Fetched https://apt-longview.linode.com/linode.gpg
4 - Moved linode.gpg into /etc/apt/gpg.trusted.d
5 - Created linode.list in /etc/apt/sources.list.d:
deb http://apt-longview.linode.com/ buster main
Get:3 http://apt-longview.linode.com buster InRelease [3,241 B] Err:3 http://apt-longview.linode.com buster InRelease The following signatures were invalid: D12F8D2C47B4A16917C9A040BED67E64325A043E Reading package lists...

Checking the keys - the linode key is imported:
apt-key list .... .... pub rsa4096 2013-02-07 [SC] D12F 8D2C 47B4 A169 17C9 A040 BED6 7E64 325A 043E uid [ unknown] Linode, LLC <firstname.lastname@example.org> .... /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/linode.gpg --------------------------------- pub rsa4096 2013-02-07 [SC] D12F 8D2C 47B4 A169 17C9 A040 BED6 7E64 325A 043E uid [ unknown] Linode, LLC <email@example.com>
The key is listed twice, I assume first "instance" was added by Linode early on during node creation, and the second was just now added by me into
But in any case the signing key is there.
Am I doing something wrong or is there an issue on Linode's side?
Tried to edit the
linode.list repo file to change the
distro name to Ubuntu's -
cosmic all worked, no signing errors from
But any Debian codename -
buster - produces the above GPG error.
And so - looks like Debian repos are not properly signed (while Ubuntu repos are)?
Thanks for letting us know. I'll make sure we get the signatures fixed for the other versions, but for now Debian 9 'stretch' works if you'd like to use it. I've confirmed it on my own Linode, and the same version of Longview that works on Debian 9 will likely work on Debian 10 with no or minimal changes needed.
