Authentication failure on Linux

I’m getting:

“There were unauthenticated packages and -y was used without --allow-unauthenticated”

The problem seems to be related to

[0K$ sudo -E apt-add-repository -y "ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test"
gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmp6a2v61ol/secring.gpg' created
gpg: keyring `/tmp/tmp6a2v61ol/pubring.gpg' created

Hello tdegeus,

Did you happen to run the --allow-unauthenticated argument? If so, did that give you any different results?

Hi @Montana

Thanks for the reply.

I did not. In the mean time, things seems to be running as normal again. So presumably some bug got fixed or some server was restarted.

Hey @tdegeus,

Great to hear, if there’s anything else that comes up, be sure to come back and we will always help you out.
