I'm experimenting with VPNs, so I wanted to install pptpd.
john@desktop:~$ sudo apt-get install pptpd [sudo] password for john: <snip> The following extra packages will be installed: bcrelay The following NEW packages will be installed: bcrelay pptpd 0 upgraded, 2 newly installed, 0 to remove and 11 not upgraded. Need to get 90.5 kB of archives. After this operation, 442 kB of additional disk space will be used. Do you want to continue [Y/n]? y
And everything runs fine until I get down to here:
WARNING: The following packages cannot be authenticated! bcrelay pptpd Install these packages without verification [y/N]? n E: Some packages could not be authenticated
No authentication? I'm no security expert, but I'm fairly sure that's a bad thing. So I check to see where the packages are coming from.
john@desktop:~$ apt-cache policy pptpd pptpd: Installed: (none) Candidate: 1.3.4-3ubuntu1 Version table: 1.3.4-3ubuntu1 0 500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty/main i386 Packages john@desktop:~$ apt-cache policy bcrelay bcrelay: Installed: (none) Candidate: 1.3.4-3ubuntu1 Version table: 1.3.4-3ubuntu1 0 500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ natty/main i386 Packages
They're coming from Ubuntu.com and not being properly authenticated? What's going on here?
