Unable to update Expedition "expedition-updates/ Release' does not have a Release file"

Currently have expedition 1.1.46.1 installed and running.

on "sudo apt-get update" I receive the message below.

 

W: The repository 'https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com expedition-updates/ Release' does not have a Release file.

N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.

 

I was unable to find any previous threads concerning this issue.

This is a normal message due to the settings of our repository.

 

Continue ahead installing the updates.

This is not a solution. I have concerns on running Palo Alto software in my network considering the "push ahead" attitude when confronted with security concerns. Why has this software not been signed? Is it current PA policy to produce applications for enterprise use with such lenient security?

Hi,

 

We understand your concerns. This is not a product, but a tool offered for free to use and download, and not strictly required to run Palo Alto Networks products.

While we do not have the repository signed, the deb packages themselves are actually signed.

We have plans to provide certified repository listing as well, but it is not yet deployed and we have certain points with higher priority we want to get covered first.

Editing the repo list at /etc/apt/sources.list.d/ex-repo.list to include

deb [trusted=yes] https://conversionupdates.paloaltonetworks.com/ expedition-updates/

 

Prevents the warnings from appearing in the future.
