    Better to wait. I'm sure it will be fixed. Other updates are just fine. (Ubuntu 11.10)

    I had a few isolated instances of that. I remember fixing it as follows:-

    sudo apt-key adv --recv-keys --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com A040830F7FAC5991

    Where the numerals are the ones shown next to Badsig.

    BTW. what is the red hat --nogpgcheck equivalent for Ubuntu ? I can't remember - getting old.

    and http://askubuntu.com/questions/1877/what-is-the-easiest-way-to-resolve-apt-get-badsig-gpg-errors

    but I'm going to wait and see. See http://googlechromereleases.blogspot.com/ for the new Chrome stable!

    And it's fixed. Downloading the new Chrome now.

    Edit: Need to get 29.2 MB of archives.
    After this operation, 1,327 kB disk space will be freed.


    Looks like they're serious about reducing bloat in their code, an intention they had announced a while ago!
