    Question Can't verify downloaded ISOs

    Hi,

    I am trying to verify the downloaded ISOs per this https://docs.kali.org/introduction/download-official-kali-linux-images#manual link, but it does not seem to work at all. For example, this cmd
    leads to this:

    C:\tmp>wget -q -O - https://www.kali.org/archive-key.asc | gpg --import
    gpg: no valid OpenPGP data found.
    gpg: Total number processed: 0

    Ok, let's try another one:

    gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 7D8D0BF6
    Instead of the described output I observe:

    C:\tmp>gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 7D8D0BF6
    gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure

    What am I doing wrong?

    There is something wrong with your connection/system, the second option works fine.

    Ok, how can I identify what's wrong with my "system"? I tried to repeat the last command from another laptop and got the same response - "gpg: keyserver receive failed: Server indicated a failure"

    The URL in the instructions was outdated, it's now fixed

    What url? If you are talking about hkp://keys.gnupg.net , then I have to disappoint you - nothing changed neither in the instruction nor in behavior of the command "gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-key 7D8D0BF6". What am I doing wrong?

    https://www.kali.org/archive-key.asc was updated

    Regarding your issue with keys.gnupg.net, I have no idea, you would have to check GPG documentation to find out what is the issue.
