I encountered an error that a lot of Whonix users had before.
This is the second time that I see it and error is the following:
ERROR: Whonix News Download Result:
Could not OpenPGP verify authenticity of Whonix News !!!
(gpg_bash_lib_output_gpg_verify_exit_code: 0 | gpg_bash_lib_output_validsig_status: true | gpg_bash_lib_output_alright_status: false | gpg_bash_lib_output_failure: )
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- or Whonix News Keys might be outdated.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 try to solve with a new download of whonix gateway and reinstalling it, but it remains after every whonix check.
I use Whonix gateway 18.104.22.168.4 and if I connect a VM under Whonix, check.torproject advise me that I am connected to tor.
I ask you how to solve and if I navigate through the internet, does this error compromise my security?
I just ran whonixcheck and I get the same error, they must have fucked something up temporarely or we are getting some massive attack to whonix users idk
Maybe Whonix is under attack I got same error since yesterday
Didn’t find a solution.
Hope admins here will help us asap since It’s bit worrying.
Tried install new Whonix 13 VM on VirtualBox.
Tried "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade"
Tried “bash -x whonixcheck --function download_whonix_news”
Me either tried to update and upgrade and also tried the command bash -x whonixcheck --function download_whonix_check but nothing happen…again the error! By the way if I connect my virtualbox I result under tor and everything works! I think we will wait some news or the admins that find a solution.
Last thing, this is the second time that this happen, the first time after one day I executed whonix check and the error disappeared.
