gpg: requesting key A1F196A8 from hkp server keyserver.ubuntu.com
gpg: can't open `/home/corey/.gnupg/pubring.gpg'
gpg: keydb_get_keyblock failed: eof
gpg: no writable keyring found: eof
gpg: error reading `[stream]': general error
gpg: Total number processed: 0

I don't think the public keys are required, it'll just bitch and moan about it, but you can still do everything without it.


Your resident psycho hobo
no, you cant. it will not be able to get updates from the source w/o the key.
