Hello everybody.

I'm still running Trisquel 7 on a Thinkpad L540, just trying to upgrade to Trisquel 8. I've run:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get update

I get the following error message:
W: GPG-Fehler: http://archive.canonical.com precise Release: Die folgenden Signaturen konnten nicht überprüft werden, weil ihr öffentlicher Schlüssel nicht verfügbar ist: NO_PUBKEY 40976EAF437D05B5

What can I do? I have tried and re-installed trisquel-keyring but that didn't help. How do I get the public key?

Thank you very much in advance.

Florian

I just solved this myself -- don't bother.

However, I just learned that "apt-get dist-upgrade" unfortunately does /not/ upgrade to the next version. In my understanding, I would have to change the repositories, is that right? In other words, and more basic: How /do/ I upgrade from Trisquel 7 to Trisquel 8 without re-install?
Thanks in advance.

Edit /etc/apt/sources.list as root

$ sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

and replace every occurance of "belenos" with "flidas". Then run

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt dist-upgrade

Thank you very much! Now it works.
That did it for me -- now I have a different problem because I need space on my hard disk, either change partition size or delete stuff, let's see.
Thanks.

$ sudo apt autoremove && sudo apt clean

might help.

when entering what you suggest I get an error message that "autoremove" is an invalid option. Nothing else happens. Why?

I'm not sure. Double check that you typed everything correctly, and if
you get the same error, please copy/paste the exact error message here.

After double-check, I get the following error:
> E: Ungültige Operation autoremove
Literally translated, this means "invalid operation autoremove".

Hm. What if you change "apt" to "apt-get"?

yes, apt-get takes these options. However, it doesn't help clearing space...
Thanks for your help anyway.

Running "do-release-upgrade -c" gives the message that there are no new releases available.
How do I then upgrade?
