    Hi community,

    I really need your help here (and I really hope it's nothing noobies I've overseen!)

    I'm on the verge of getting absolutely mental, due to massive failed attempts to install cPanel on a clean VPS.

    I've tried CentOS 7, 6.5, 6.6 and Cloudlinux 6.6 but without any luck.

    The installationprocess fails out at GPG keys, terminating due a FATAL error:

    Code:
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.

    So what the h*ll am I missing here guys? I've tried updating EVERYTHING and so on - and Googled my self to a neardeath experience.

    I really hope that you can bring me closer to a solution! :)

    Thanks Dalem, but I've tried that numerous times.

    I gave up on the selected VPS host, and bought another solution - and now cPanel is installing just fine.

    Hello :)

    I am happy to see the issue is now resolved. Thank you for updating us with the outcome. Note that for anyone else experiencing the same issue, I've seen similar error messages in cases where /etc/cpsources.conf contained an invalid mirror. Removing this file and restarting the installation addressed the issue.

    Thank you.
