    bad signatures when updating


    when do urpmi item i get a bad signature for anything that is downloaded:

    # urpmi glibc
    To satisfy dependencies, the following 2 packages are going to be installed (19 MB):
    glibc-2.3.3-23.1.101mdk.i586
    glibc-devel-2.3.3-23.1.101mdk.i586
    Is this OK? (Y/n) y

    ftp://ftp.sunsite.org.uk/package/man...01mdk.i586.rpm
    ftp://ftp.sunsite.org.uk/package/man...01mdk.i586.rpm
    The following packages have bad signatures:
    /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/glibc-devel-2.3.3-23.1.101mdk.i586.rpm: Invalid Key ID (sha1 md5 gpg GPG#22458a98 OK)
    Do you want to continue installation ? (y/N)

    I removed updates from the media manager and tried again, but then both files got the errors. I then tried the screensavers and the following is what happened.

    # urpmi xscreensaver-gl

    ftp://ftp.sunsite.org.uk/package/man...01mdk.i586.rpm
    The following packages have bad signatures:
    /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/xscreensaver-gl-4.18-2.1.101mdk.i586.rpm: Invalid Key ID ((sha1) dsa sha1 md5 gpg GPG#22458a98 OK)
    Do you want to continue installation ? (y/N) y
    installing /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/xscreensaver-gl-4.18-2.1.101mdk.i586.rpm
    Preparing... ##################################################
    1screensaver-gl ##################################################

    It's not all that uncommon to have glitches during the downloading of files. Try a different mirror and see if you get better results.

    The check is telling you that the checksums do not match up and the download is corrupted.
