Signatures were invalid: KEYEXPIRED 1409325681


I have similar problem as in Whonix Forum thread but a bit different.

  1. This fix doesn’t work:
fpr="916B8D99C38EAF5E8ADC7A2A8D66066A2EEACCDA" gpg --recv-keys "$fpr" gpg --fingerprint "$fpr" gpg --export "$fpr" | sudo apt-key add -
When running it I'm having this:
user@host:~$ gpg --recv-keys "$fpr" gpg: requesting key 0x8D66066A2EEACCDA from hkp server 2eghzlv2wwcq7u7y.onion 11:40:06 libtorsocks(14925): connect: Connection is to a local address (, may be a TCP DNS request to a local DNS server so have to reject to be safe. Please report a bug to if this is preventing a program from working properly with torsocks. 11:40:10 libtorsocks(14925): SOCKS V4 connect rejected: 11:40:10 libtorsocks(14925): SOCKS server refused connection gpgkeys: HTTP fetch error 52: getpeername() failed with errno 107: Transport endpoint is not connected gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found. gpg: Total number processed: 0
  1. KEYEXPIRED error a bit differs. While upgrading I’m having this:
W: A error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: stable Release: The following signatures were invalid: KEYEXPIRED 1409325681 KEYEXPIRED 1409325681 KEYEXPIRED 1409325681 KEYEXPIRED 1409325681

W: Failed to fetch

W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

I’ve found “The Tor Project’s apt repository key expired” thread on the forum with the same “KEYEXPIRED 1409325681” but there is no fix at it.

P.S.: Whonix v8.1

Please help.

Support for Whonix 8.x has ended a long time ago.

Upgrading Whonix 8 to Whonix 9 is no longer supported. (Unless someone volunteers to fix it.) (Release Upgrade - Whonix)

Ahh, I get it. Can you give any advice 'bout migrating all the installed software in Workstation?


Transfer your data from old VMs to new VMs. (File Transfer - Whonix)
Then reinstall software in new VMs.
