Running on 18.04, when trying
sudo do-release-upgrade -d I get following error :
authenticate 'focal.tar.gz' against 'focal.tar.gz.gpg' Authentication failed Authenticating the upgrade failed. There may be a problem with the network or with the server.
I've seen numerous posts akgin to reinstall
sudo apt-get install --reinstall ubuntu-keyring
Which I did, with no result.
I manually downloaded focal.tar.gz and focal.tar.gz.gpg from http://mirrors.linode.com/ubuntu/dists/focal-proposed/main/dist-upgrader-all/20.04.18/
I did run a gpg check
gpg --receive-keys 871920D1991BC93C gpg --receive-keys 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 gpg --verify focal.tar.gz.gpg focal.tar.gz
Looks succesful (with warnings, but at least it matches)

No idea what I could try to make the upgrade accept the file, and the process to go on.
I do not wish to follow this suggestion : change manually the sources definition, https://stackoverflow.com/questions/62388015/authenticating-the-upgrade-failed-there-may-be-a-problem-with-the-network-or-wi
I'm running this ubuntu machine as a 'maintainability test for any user', so my challenge here is not to tweak around. For that, my main pc runs arch 😉
So, I'm looking for a way as easy to explain and reproduce as possible to solve this.
Thank you !
I could manually tinker with apt-key
gpg --receive-keys 3B4FE6ACC0B21F32 gpg --receive-keys 871920D1991BC93C gpg --export 790BC7277767219C42C86F933B4FE6ACC0B21F32 > 1.gpg gpg --export F6ECB3762474EDA9D21B7022871920D1991BC93C > 2.gpg sudo apt-key add 1.gpg sudo apt-key add 2.gpg
but that's not something I should do …. is it ?
And even so, it fails later on with

I sure can wait for 20.04.1 release but… that's a weird behaviour.
Looks like repo info is not found see
Fetched 0 B in 0s (0 B/s) but when I manually browse the repo, things are there.
