The signing key was updated yesterday, but now these errors come out of WineHQ's repositories for Ubuntu:

Code:
N: Repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic InRelease' changed its 'Version' value from '18.04' to ''
E: Repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic InRelease' changed its 'Codename' value from 'bionic' to ''
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.


Y'all misconfigured your repository servers.

I googled that message about explicitly accepting the changes, and came up with https://askubuntu.com/questions/989906/ ... -ppa-label.

Are you still using apt-get? That's been deprecated for some time; use apt. Installing from the current repository works fine here.

This was in the automatic update logs from the Ubuntu automatic updater. This uses a direct backend to apt and I can't confirm whether it is or isn't using `apt-get` or not. This said, if it is using `apt-get` that's because `apt-get` can be more usable in scriptable environments by automatic updates.

I pulled log data here directly from the system logs that the update system sent to me upon the error cases.

The repository is not misconfigured, but it has changed, and the changes are intentional. Using apt directly on the command line works without any problem.

As to how to straighten out the updater app, I'd try using apt on the command line and see if that straightens it out, and if it doesn't, ask on the Ubuntu forum what to do.

Nope, pretty sure it's misconfigured. Especially since `apt-get` is not yet deprecated. (These lack of items break basic package repo policy including Debian's I'm surprised you don't get them coming around and complaining more, but eh, end users vs. power users)

`apt-get` has not yet been deprecated by *any* of the developers in Ubuntu or Debian, therefore stating that it's 'deprecated' is an incorrect statement.

(FYI: I'm an Ubuntu Developer with the Server Team, so I'm well aware of whether apt-get is deprecated or not - and it is not)

(Just my 2 cents)
apt is the program for the end-user. It has the most common options and is user-friendly.
"Power users" still can use apt-get (there are options that aren't available in apt),
and probably they know how to accept changes in the repository InRelease file.
Code:
apt-get update -y --allow-releaseinfo-change


A couple of months ago Google had the same, when they changed their name from "Google, Inc"' to "Google LLC"

Well then you should know far more than I about how to explicitly accept the changes as the updater app is demanding. As for the repository itself, as I said, it has changed. Ordinary users don't seem to be having a problem with it once they download the new key.

FYI (for power users who pay attention to things like repository structure), the WineHQ Debian and Ubuntu repositories no longer follow Debian structure. Instead, they use a flat structure to match the OBS repository structure. This may not be readily apparent when browsing the directories, because the old packages are still there in their old locations.

I get a different error now: the bionic Packages file seems to be partial (57840 bytes instead of 62840) and the hashes of course don't compare. This is the italian error:

Code:
Scaricamento di:25 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic/main i386 Packages [62,8 kB]
Errore:25 https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic/main i386 Packages
  Il file ha una dimensione non attesa (57840 != 62840). Sincronizzazione del mirror in corso? [IP: 151.101.194.217 443]
  Hashes of expected file:

Well, Google translate tells me that "Sincronizzazione del mirror in corso?" means "Mirror synchronization in progress?", and looking at the timestamp of the error message, that's my guess what happened. So try again, if you haven't already.

Yes now it works, since the file had been partial for over 2 hours I thought it was simply broken.

Thanks

Just to comment about "APT Works!"... it doesn't.

Code:
N: Repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic InRelease' changed its 'Version' value from '18.04' to ''
E: Repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu bionic InRelease' changed its 'Codename' value from 'bionic' to ''
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
Do you want to accept these changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N]


It lets us *bypass* the error, but the error still exists (it's still bound by apt-secure).

I would suggest that you update the wiki pages for the Ubuntu repos and such accordingly to make a notice about this. Because Mint, Ubuntu, Debian, etc. users will all have this problem whether using apt or not.

The instructions already tell users to run apt update. Are you saying that the message persists even after the changes are accepted through apt update?

I also wouldn't call it an error message. The information that the repository has changed is correct, and users already know that, because they had to download a new key. All the message does is ask them to confirm their acceptance.
