I get the following error when I launch the AppCentre. It reads

E: Repository 'http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable Release' changed its 'Origin' value from 'Google, Inc.' to 'Google LLC'

I had installed Chrome via Eddy. When I encountered this error, I uninstalled it.

But I could not get rid of this error. I have attached a screenshot of how it displays. How do I get rid of it?

Error on launching "App Store"

It looks like AppCentre can't handle that kind of user interaction

That message was a normal user interaction asking if you accept the change from Google Inc to Google LLC in the repo's config

Anyone using apt through terminal could answer that without any issue but if the GUI, in this case AppCentre, wasn't able to and by default treated like an error you see that message. A wrong message because was not an error, the error is on AppCentre

To continue without that message, open a terminal and use this command

$ sudo apt update

there you'll be asked the question I told you above (Yes/No question). Answer Yes and then you can continue using AppCentre as usual

There's no need to remove Google's repo, there's no problem there. Also because this isn't an error you can install Chrome back safely if you want/need

I also recommend you to report the error on AppCentre's Github page



Try running this terminal command

sudo apt update

If this does not fix the App Center warning, try removing the repository from your system.

sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-chrome.list.save
sudo apt update

This means you will not longer get updates for google chrome. You will have to reinstall google chrome to get updates. You can do this via third party repository or by downloading and installing the .deb file directly from google.
