Summary0008019: Live build crashes due to gpg-error of package
DescriptionDear package team,

since almost a year i am running into the following issue:

I am regularly creating my own live-image as described on your site. As I do not want to download all packages every time and only want the newer packages, I am
using aptcacher-ng. Thus I get all once downloaded packages on my harddrive and can use it for tje next build.

This worked well many years long, but since about a year I am running into gpg-errors, when the packages are unpacked.

To make sure, the error was not caused by the download, I delete the responsible package and let it download again - with the same error appearing again.

The solution is, to delete the all packages downloaded and begin a fresh download of all packages. But this is not want I want (as decribed above).

However, I believe, to avoid this bug, there is nothing I can do from my site, so my begging is, if someone could have a look, if something in the repo has changed. For
example, maybe the automatical creation of hashsums or gpg-key is failing or is not always correct to be written.

Sadly I have no actual build.log available at the moment, but when the next failure appears and there is a build.log, I will send it to you. But perhaps this is not needed.

Thank you very much for reading this bugreport and any help.

Best regards

Hi, please provide logs when you have the time. Not sure I can help though.

I use apt-cacher-ng as well, usually it works well. Sometimes I have some errors, and usually I just do:

sudo rm -fr /var/cache/apt-cacher-ng/klxrep/dists/
sudo systemctl restart apt-cacher-ng

And that's enough to fix it.
