I have downloaded the above named file from 3 sources.
The checksum as described here:
is not verified.
The checksum should be:
But running the checksum generator in the terminal of Linux Mint 17.2, my current system gives this:
serapis@osireiron ~/ISO $ sha256sum -b *.iso
I attempted to check the validity of the checksum file also described on the linuxmint page. It could not open the sha256sum.txt file:
serapis@osireiron ~/ISO $ gpg --verify sha256sum.txt.gpg sha256sum.txt
gpg: can't open `sha256sum.txt.gpg'
gpg: verify signatures failed: file open error
I managed to verify that the ISO has the correct checksum, but linux still cannot open the sha256sum.txt.gpg file.
I am wondering if I need to download a separate linux key.
Any pointers appreciated to getting a verified copy.
