Dear all; every time I start F24, it tells me an important upgrade is available: Fedora 25. Clicking the 'Download' button results in a lengthy process of RG+HDD activity with an error: Sorry, this did not work Upgrade to Fedora 25 failed. Details

Detailed errors from the package manager follow:
package google-earth-stable-6.0.3.2197-0.x86_64 cannot be verified and repo google-earth is GPG enabled: failed to lookup digest in keyring for /var/cache/PackageKit/25/metadata/google-earth/packages/google-earth-stable-6.0.3.2197-0.x86_64.rpm

Any help is appreciated. TIA.

An alternative method would be to erase package google-earth and reinstall later after upgrade to F25.

did the same: uninstall, and reinstall after the upgrade.

love the Fedora 25!

Hello, disable GPG check for google-earth. change gpgcheck=1 to 0 (zero) in the .repo file. /etc/yum.repos.d/google-earthwhatever.repo

Thanks Octavia. After setting gpgcheck=0, new error message is: "Error running transaction: file /usr/bin from install of google-earth-stable-6.0.3.2197-0.x8664 conflicts with file from filesystem-3.2-37.fc24.x8664". I do not want to uninstall Google-earth: it is really hard to install anything in Linux - I'm new to it.
