  • I downloaded the SHA256SUMS and SHA256SUMS.gpg files from here releases.ubuntu.com/eoan and then ran the "gpg --keyid-format long --verify SHA256SUMS.gpg SHA256SUMS" Command according to this tutorial: tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/… – hgen8tgvqgyq Nov 17 '19 at 22:15

    You are running it from a wrong directory. You need to run it from a directory where these files are located. – Pilot6 Nov 17 '19 at 22:20
  • Okay, thank you. – hgen8tgvqgyq Nov 18 '19 at 14:09

I fixed it by adding .txt to the end so the command ended up looking like this (gpg --keyid-format long --verify SHA256SUMS.gpg.txt SHA256SUMS.txt)
