# apt-get update Ign:16 http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu virtualmin-universal Release.gpg Reading package lists... Done W: GPG error: http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu virtualmin-universal Release: The following signatures were invalid: 31D2B18872EAF68EFB81F81DE8DD3FA0A0BDBCF9 E: The repository 'http://software.virtualmin.com/gpl/ubuntu virtualmin-universal Release' is not signed. N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.
This is due to the signing key still using SHA1 despite many years of warnings to upgrade the signing algorithm and promises in forum posts by staff to upgrade since at least 2016.

There is no reason the Release file cannot be signed by both weak and strong keys and both signatures put in the Release.gpg files.
