When we download software, we need to verify two things:
The integrity of the software we have just downloaded.
The authenticity of the package.
Checking these two things will ensure that the download went well, and that the software is authentic (and not malware, for example).
I've just installed Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS mini (to use as a server)
But when I'm trying to create a new gpg/gpg2 key it just stops after I've confirmed my passphrase.. nothing happens after that.
It don't freeze, I can stop it with ctrl-c
This one was running for an hour before I stopped it.
