centos-kernel perl-generators and perl-interpreter "--checksig" fail?

Post by pjwelsh » 2021/02/10 13:50:35

Due to past package corruption issues on systems, I include an "rpm --checksig" for all packages. Recently, the centos-kernel/x86_64/Packages/{perl-generators-1.08-6.el7.noarch.rpm,perl-interpreter-5.16.3-6.el7.noarch.rpm} have been failing the check and my reposync fails as a result.

So, downloading the files (from 2018) directly from http://mirror.centos.org/centos/7/updat ... /Packages/ produces the same failed key/"digests SIGNATURES NOT OK"/"NOKEY" results:

Code: Select all

$ rpm --checksig perl-generators-1.08-6.el7.noarch.rpm
perl-generators-1.08-6.el7.noarch.rpm: digests SIGNATURES NOT OK
[
$ rpm --checksig perl-interpreter-5.16.3-6.el7.noarch.rpm
perl-interpreter-5.16.3-6.el7.noarch.rpm: digests SIGNATURES NOT OK

$ rpm -v --checksig perl-interpreter-5.16.3-6.el7.noarch.rpm
perl-interpreter-5.16.3-6.el7.noarch.rpm:
    Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 62505fe6: NOKEY
    Header SHA1 digest: OK
    V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 62505fe6: NOKEY
    MD5 digest: OK

$ rpm -v --checksig perl-generators-1.08-6.el7.noarch.rpm
perl-generators-1.08-6.el7.noarch.rpm:
    Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 62505fe6: NOKEY
    Header SHA1 digest: OK
    V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID 62505fe6: NOKEY
    MD5 digest: OK
No other files seem affected at this point.
Any idea what's going on?

Hmm, perl-generators is from EPEL and perl-interpreter doesn't exist in any of my repos.

Created CentOS bug https://bugs.centos.org/view.php?id=18058
Could be nothing, could be something, not sure.
