Run the following command in case you got errors during "Verifying source file signatures with gpg..."

gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E

Alternatively, you can download Dropbox's public key from https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc and import it with:

gpg --import rpm-public-key.asc

You can check whether keys are successfully imported or not using the output of gpg -k. You should find something like this:

pub   rsa2048 2010-02-11 [SC]
      1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E
uid           [ unknown] Dropbox Automatic Signing Key <linux@dropbox.com>

If you can't run the dropbox@ service normally, try to create a read-only directory ~/.dropbox-dist and run again.

@gothicVI I'm using aura, which needs to be run as root when installing packages. I've installed this package before using aura without an issue, I'm just trying to upgrade (97.4.467-1 -> 98.4.158-1). I tried using pikaur instead and the check passed, so it does seem to be an issue with aura though and not actually with this package.

EDIT: In case anyone else has this problem, it's solved by using sudo -E rather than just sudo. Explanation in the aura changelog here: https://github.com/fosskers/aura/blob/master/aura/CHANGELOG.md#311-2020-06-02

@nthorderindex what's the exact command you're using to install dropbox in the first place?

If you're running, e.g., pikaur or yay do not run them as root.

Not sure what to make of this — I've imported the key (and it shows up in the output of gpg -k) but am currently getting a "PGP signatures could not be verified" error:

==> Verifying source file signatures with gpg...
    dropbox-lnx.x86_64-98.4.158.tar.gz ... FAILED
==> ERROR: One or more PGP signatures could not be verified!

jerz4evr commented on 2020-05-31 02:30

An single command to fix the errors with file signature verification as referenced by yan12125's comment is the following:

curl https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc | gpg --import

This is especially helpful if you keep getting the following error when trying to use gpg --recv-keys 1C61A2656FB57B7E4DE0F4C1FC918B335044912E:

gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

@Groumpf: Thanks a lot! That actually does the trick...

Groumpf commented on 2020-05-21 15:54

@gothicVI: I accidentally ran pikaur as root and got your error message. Try running pikaur as a normal user.

gothicVI commented on 2020-03-30 12:26

Running makepkg and makepkg --install on the snapshot did the trick. There seems to be something wrong with pikaur I'll need to investigate...

Hi, the update from version 92.4.382-1 -> 93.4.273-1 fails with:

Do you need any additional information?

When I get the error in

Starting prepare()

which has been the case for quite a while, I do

rm src/dropbox.desktop

and since I initiated the process with makepkg -si, I issue that command again. YMMV

Hi, for the last few versions, I’m getting the following error:

==> Starting prepare()...

dropbox.desktop already exists. Use -f as the first argument to gendesk to overwrite.
