The problem I'm encountering appeared identical to this one:

AppCenter complains and doesn't work to install anything

Unfortunately, the fix used there, i.e. removing and reinstalling the appcenter, did not work for me. The contents of appcenter.list, elementary.list and patches.list are all identical to those in the above-cited question. Since the "details" says it's an authentication problem, I doubt this is due to a problematic repository, but for the record here are the files in my own /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory:

appcenter.list
appcenter.list.save
elementary.list
elementary.list.save
eugenesan-ubuntu-ppa-bionic.list
fingerprint-ubuntu-fingerprint-gui-bionic.list
fingerprint-ubuntu-fingerprint-gui-bionic.list.save
patches.list
patches.list.save
philip_scott-ubuntu-elementary-tweaks-bionic.list
philip_scott-ubuntu-elementary-tweaks-bionic.list.save
phoerious-ubuntu-keepassxc-bionic.list
phoerious-ubuntu-keepassxc-bionic.list.save

All help will be greatly appreciated.

  • Restarting my computer (and elementary os of course) seems to have cleared up the problem ... – Tim02130 Dec 28 '19 at 21:45
  • Can you put the full error message from AppCenter detail? – LinkPhoenix Dec 31 '19 at 11:17
  • The "detail" follows the comma verbatim in the title to this question. – Tim02130 Jan 1 at 12:05
  • Restarting didn't help for me... :( – DanielM 2 days ago
