Okay, my level is this - I don't know what Bash is, but I think I am using it because the tutorial told me to... https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tutorial-how-to-verify-ubuntu
It then told me to follow the tutorial to install the Ubuntu Terminal. I did this.
Once I got that running, now what? I try the commands suggested and get nothing like what I am expecting back, but the tutorial offers no guidance beyond the two cases expected.
So I can't check the file signature key, because I have no idea what to do when it is telling me the file can not be found. Why? Because it is in my downloads and I have no idea where to find the new folder structure created for ubuntu on Win 10.
Why am I doing this in Win 10? Because I can't install Ubuntu on my old laptop after spending something like a week on this.
gpg --keyid-format long --verify SHA256SUMS.gpg SHA256SUMS gpg: can't open 'SHA256SUMS.gpg': No such file or directory gpg: verify signatures failed: No such file or directory
I would move the file if I knew where to move it to, or could find anything in my file structure to go on.
Please help with what is surely a trivial issue to those who have got beyond this infuriating early ut steep learning curve. Thanks
