I'm trying to install the latest updates from my software manager and it wants me to install untrusted packages? Should I install the packages, if so, how? It just says it requires the untrusted packages and when I click OK it goes back to the Software Updater.

  • You didn't give us much information. Do you have this problem?

  • No. I saw that thread and that isn't the same issue as mine. Sorry I didn't mention it before, but it's regular system updates. I'm not trying to install VLC or anything like that.

  • But did you get the same window?

  • It's similar, but no. I've also run through the steps mentioned in that thread and I'm still having the issue. That's why I made this post in the first place.
