After start tor-browser on debian wheezy it tried to upgrade to 6.5 version. It automatically downloaded asc, xz and failed on verifying. I made so several times, then go to https://dist.torproject.org/torbrowser/6.5/ and downloaded myself both. Both are same checked with diff3. After failed verifying, obviously, cannot upgrade. What can be reason? Thanks.

  • I am also having issue with TorBrowser 6.5 on macOS – please let me know what relevant details I can provide to help diagnose + fix. – Ken M. Haggerty Jan 25 '17 at 5:35
  • I saw github.com/micahflee/torbrowser-launcher/issues/260 Is there some way other to waiting debian maintaineer , for example suspend/not upgrade to 6.5? Such problems will be in future also. – zkutch Jan 25 '17 at 5:52
  • Careful! This is not a question about Tor Browser; it is a question about a separate thing, which is an unrelated Debian package named torbrowser-launcher. People who use Tor Browser, and let it update itself the way it does by default, will not encounter this issue. – Roger Dingledine Jan 25 '17 at 6:38

Solution for Debian Wheezy found following:

update/refresh keys from mit using command

gpg --keyserver pgp.mit.edu --homedir "$HOME/.local/share/torbrowser/gnupg_homedir/" --refresh-keys

after this torbrowser-launcher upgrades itself successfully.

Thanks to Vika^ from #tor
