Since quite sime time now I’ve been unable to upgrade my test system to Solaris 11.1.
The system was running 11.0 SRU 10.4 and for some reason, when I wanted to run ‘pkg update’, I faced this message:
pkg install: A signature in pkg://email@example.com,5.11-0.175.1.0.0.23.1134:20120820T160256Z could not be verified for this reason: The signature value did not match the expected value. Res: 0 The signature's hash is 235c7674d821032ae3eeda280c7837d1f1f4fdb5
I’ve finally found (1) a solution to upgrade anyway and (2) a way to install the system/locale package, discarding this message.
pkg uninstall system/locale LC_ALL=C pkg update --accept reboot
Then, I’ve discovered that pkg signatures can be avoided using a pkg property:
# LC_ALL=C pkg set-property signature-policy ignore # LC_ALL=C pkg install system/locale
And that’s it! As I’ve never had any answer to this issue anywhere, I’d thought I would share the resolution 😉
