Ubuntu Trusty Release.gpg contains random data
|Reported by:||Owned by:|
I tried to update recently from the ubuntu packages, and it seems to me that
contains seemingly random data instead of the expected gpg signature. apt-get update fails to interpret the file as well.
I sincerely hope that this is not security-relevant data or indicates an attack on the nginx.org package server, but in case it is, I have opened this issue with high priority.

Sorry, I just re-tested it with a proper apt and realized the errors I was seeing came from Aptly (http://www.aptly.info/). I openend some other Release.gpg up and they are all ASCII-Armored, e.g. https://get.docker.io/ubuntu/dists/docker/Release.gpg so I was not expecting an unarmored signature.
I will file a bug with aptly that they also work with unarmored signatures.
Thank you for the quick response!

The actual issue has not been resolved.
There seem to be missin colons in the Release file.

Fixed, thanks for spotting this.
Release.gpg is expected to contain non-armored signature.
$ sha256sum Release.gpg
Can you show how apt errors out on you? Tests here show the file is just fine.
