    Something screwy is going on with the Ubuntu mirrors over the last couple of days. If you read the forums, you will see people complaining about it.

    In any case, I also have been getting that error ("Warning are you sure you want to install this unauthenticated software?") The warning is supposed to happen when a software package either is not signed or is signed with the wrong key, but it has been happening with me when trying to download from the official repos. I have noticed that doing another repo refresh often times fixes the issue for me.

    My Ubuntu_One account has also been acting screwy. Some of my files refuse to sync.

    That is strange Ocky. A kernel upgrade and you are getting a not authenticated message.
     
  6. I'm hoping this isn't the case, but... Maybe there was an intrusion attempt? Because that's the reason this stuff was put in place to start with...

    I doubt that, gotta be mirror specific issue, all the systems upgraded fine here.

    Just did it #36 - this time no warnings re. software cannot be authenticated.
    So many reboots - starting to look like Windows. ;)

    Update and patches, specially from Ubuntu and Fedora devs is what keeps them on edge over others.

    Well there is a way to run new kernel without reboot, servers do that but then reboot in Ubuntu is so fast, it hardly matters here.

    WOW they must have optimized the kernel, this is good news indeed.

    It's available in universe. Has anybody tried it? Not that I really need it - I'm not running a server. But it's an interesting approach :)
