Update 21 March 2021: there’s been a recent uptick in traffic to this page – the current problem everyone is having is due to an expired key. Read more in this deb.sury.org github issue.
Solution (Debian 10.8 Buster):
(comments in various places suggest removing the old key is crucial)
sudo apt-key del B188E2B695BD4743 sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/php.gpg https://packages.sury.org/php/apt.gpg
Useful command worth noting:
Original April 2019 blog post:
If you’re running Debian and using:
deb https://packages.sury.org/php/ stretch main
(it might be in /etc/apt/sources.list.d/php.list rather than the usual sources.list)
… you may see this error:
Err:5 https://packages.sury.org/php stretch InRelease The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY B188E2B695BD4743 Reading package lists... Done W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: https://packages.sury.org/php stretch InRelease: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY B188E2B695BD4743 W: Failed to fetch https://packages.sury.org/php/dists/stretch/InRelease The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY B188E2B695BD4743 W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
This isn’t widely blogged yet, however the best source of info is the Issue queue for the deb.sury.org GitHub repository – it turns out that in mid-March, the key for each repository on sury.org was regenerated due to a compromised server.
Here’s the command to download the new one, after which apt will work as expected.
sudo wget -O /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/php.gpg https://packages.sury.org/php/apt.gpg
