Package skypeforlinux_8.62.0.83-1.x86_64.rpm is not signed

Upgrade on Fedora 31 leads the following message:

Package skypeforlinux_8.62.0.83-1.x86_64.rpm is not signed

The previous versions were upgraded without problems.

Could you please fix the issue (probably sign)?

Hello 314159fd ,

Thank you for reaching out to the community!

I recommend that you try on downloading and installing the preview version of the Skype app and test if you would experience the same issue with the package. This would help us isolate if this is only happening with the official release of Skype on your Linux distribution. You may use this link to download and install the Preview version of Skype: https://www.skype.com/en/insider/

I am looking forward to your updates on this.

Hi Benjie,

I downloaded insider version.

The same problem.

You or Skype QA could see it at the first hand.

$ rpm -qpi skypeforlinux-64-insider.rpm |grep Signature
Signature   : (none)

This is a latest version from official repository:

$ rpm -qpi skypeforlinux_8.62.0.83-1.x86_64.rpm |grep Signature
Signature   : (none)

And here is example how it was with the previous Skype version:

$ rpm -qpi skypeforlinux_8.61.0.95-1.x86_64.rpm |grep Signature
Signature   : RSA/SHA1, Mon 15 Jun 2020 11:41:04 EEST, Key ID 1f3045a5df7587c3


I would recommend you to check the signing procedure with the Skype team.

Hi Benjie,

> I would like to request from you a data log

You provided me instructions how to make logs from the working application.

But the problem is not in the Skype application per se.

The problem that MS published not signed RPM package.

Absolutely all necessary information to reproduce the problem was provided in my previous message.

It's easy to see that version 8.61 was signed, but 8.62 and from insider are not.

I do hope some next Skype release package should be signed eventually.

It's a shame to have such trivial problem not fixed so long time.

And it's a shame for QA team of Skype that unsigned packages were released for major Linux distros.

Great, so you are aware that not only Fedora 3* rpm packages were not signed :)

Any plan to fix it?

There are no data logs required, the package is unsigned. MS and the troupe of chimps they call engineers know exactly what the issue is, and how to resolve it.

What is happening here is a deliberate action, with the intention of forcing people to use Windows.

It's a particularly vile move, especially as so many people are reliant on service like Skype for personal contact. My suggestion to everyone here is to swap to Zoom.

As it looks like MS has no idea how to resolve the problem maybe this helps you:

Please sign the rpm packages of skypeforlinux as I need Skype for my work and not updating isn't a solution.

Today the skypeforlinux-8.62.0.85-1.x86_64 was was upgraded successfully.

Finally!

So MS eventually fixed the bug and signed the package correctly :)
