HP Printer driver requires access to pgp.mit.edu

Ian Bruntlett
Hi,

I was trying to install a printer driver for a HP LaserJet M1132 on a new install of Ubuntu 18.03 when I ran into a problem.

Problem turns out that the driver software needs access to pgp.mit.edu. Now I first tried this over the weekend so thought the server might be down for maintenance. Tried it this evening and I am still experiencing the same problem.

Tried connecting via ping pgp.mit.edu and failed to connect - 100% packet loss.

Interestingly enough, I can access https://pgp.mit.edu/ from a web browser.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? Is there a way around it?

TIA,


Ian

Run 'hp-plugin -i'. Ignore anything to do with keys.

or try to import it from another keyserver using command line.

$ gpg  --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys FINGERPRINT
$ gpg2 --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net       --recv-keys FINGERPRINT



An example with two Ubuntu keys:

$ gpg --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys FBB75451 EFE21092
gpg: key D94AA3F0EFE21092: 2 duplicate signatures removed
gpg: key D94AA3F0EFE21092: 59 signatures not checked due to missing keys
gpg: key D94AA3F0EFE21092: "Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key (2012) <[hidden email]>" 1 new signature
gpg: key 46181433FBB75451: 2 duplicate signatures removed
gpg: key 46181433FBB75451: 106 signatures not checked due to missing keys
gpg: key 46181433FBB75451: "Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key <[hidden email]>" not changed
gpg: no ultimately trusted keys found
gpg: Total number processed: 2
gpg:              unchanged: 1
gpg:         new signatures: 1


$ gpg --list-keys --with-fingerprint FBB75451 EFE21092
pub   dsa1024 2004-12-30 [SC]
      C598 6B4F 1257 FFA8 6632  CBA7 4618 1433 FBB7 5451
uid           [ unknown] Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key <[hidden email]>

pub   rsa4096 2012-05-11 [SC]
      8439 38DF 228D 22F7 B374  2BC0 D94A A3F0 EFE2 1092
uid           [ unknown] Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key (2012) <[hidden email]>





I tried to get FBB75451 EFE21092 from https://pgp.mit.edu/ ,
hkp://pgp.mit.edu/ , hkps://pgp.mit.edu/ , pgp.mit.edu and
hkp://pgp.mit.edu:80 by command line without success.




$ firefox https://pgp.mit.edu/

Firefox shows the web interface, but the search strings
FBB75451 and [hidden email] resulted in server errors.




FWIW uni-mainz fails, too, a keyserver I'm using most of the times [1].

$ gpg --keyserver hkp://pgp.uni-mainz.de --recv-keys FBB75451 EFE21092
gpg: keyserver receive failed: No keyserver available



gnupg.net is up and works.

$ gpg --keyserver hkp://keys.gnupg.net --recv-keys FBB75451 EFE21092
gpg: key D94AA3F0EFE21092: 61 signatures not checked due to missing keys
gpg: key D94AA3F0EFE21092: "Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key (2012) <[hidden email]>" not changed
gpg: key 46181433FBB75451: 105 signatures not checked due to missing keys
gpg: key 46181433FBB75451: "Ubuntu CD Image Automatic Signing Key <[hidden email]>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 2
gpg:              unchanged: 2

Regards,
Ralf
