[SOLVED] PGP check not working

Entering this command in my terminal in Linux Mint 20 Ulyana (Switching to Artix soon!) and I'm getting this error:

> gpg --auto-key-retrieve --verify artix-cinnamon-openrc-20210101-x86_64.iso.sig artix-cinnamon-openrc-20210101-x86_64.iso
gpg: Signature made Sun 03 Jan 2021 05:31:33 PM AST
gpg:                using RSA key A574A1915CEDE31A3BFF5A68606520ACB886B428
gpg: Can't check signature: No public key

Been searching for a while. Does it have to do with my public key ring on my machine?

Thanks,

The error appears because your gpg can't contact your specified keyserver - this is a common issue with gpg, unfortunately. Try using another server in your ~/.gnupg/gpg.conf (I use keyserver hkp://pool.sks-keyservers.net).

odysseus:[nous]:/srv/iso/iso%  gpg --auto-key-retrieve --verify artix-cinnamon-openrc-20210101-x86_64.iso.sig artix-cinnamon-openrc-20210101-x86_64.iso
gpg: Signature made Sun 03 Jan 2021 10:31:33 PM CET
gpg:                using RSA key A574A1915CEDE31A3BFF5A68606520ACB886B428
gpg: Good signature from "Christos Nouskas <[email protected]>" [ultimate]

This solved my problem.

I guess Ubuntu and therefore some of it's derivatives need a gnupg.conf created.

Thank you.
