This is either,

  • a Whonix Bug,
  • an attack on Whonix,
  • or Whonix News Keys might be outdated. Upgrading using apt-get might fix this.

I’m quoting entr0py's post from earlier today as this applies

Please search the forum first to see if the same issue has already been reported

I also currently have the same problem, I came here to find a solution

Hey 0brand
Thanks for your replying/being in touch
I’ve signed up looking for a solution to this problem, can you kindly specify to me what do you mean @Patrick needs to refresh the signature file.?

Hi fsdsfdfds

Patrick is the lead developer of Whonix. For security reasons the key GPG key/signature has to updated every so often. This is his responsibility. However, Whonix has very limited resources ATM so it may be a few days before this is done. This is nothing to be concerned about. There should be a post from Patrick very soon stating “Fixed”

Is it possible to work on a virtual machine with this error? will not there be malfunctions/leaks in work?
