# ubuntu更新问题：the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 3EB9326A7BF6DFCD

ubuntu在update时候经常会出现类似于这种这种key找不到的情况，

# W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net precise Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available:

The link above provides detailed explanation with screenshots. It also has some other simple methods that could be tried before doing this manually. Since it is not accessible from some regions let me describe the method that worked for me : Youtube.

1. Go to the OpenPGP Public Key Server. There you can enter your key into the Search String field, leaving everything else as is, then click "Search!".
When searching for a key, always prepend 0x to it! This means that, for example, you have to search for 0x6AF0E1940624A220 instead of 6AF0E1940624A220.
2. Click on the link provided in the pub section. This should take you to page containing the key. The page's heading should be similar to Public Key Server -- Get "0x6AF0E1940624A220"
3. Copy everything from underneath the title (starting from -----BEGIN PGP PUBLIC KEY BLOCK-----) and save it in a file (e.g. key1).
4. Once you have the file, run the following command

sudo apt-key add key1
