Fedora Client rpm package is unsigned


I use the Fedora rpm package of the meetings desktop client
However, I only want to install software that is correctly cryptographically signed.
That was not a problem so far. However, the recent version 5.8.4 (210) is not signed at all (see rpm -qpi output below), and the gpg signature validation fails.



$ rpm -qpi zoom_x86_64.rpm

Hey @jknaus, here is some insight I got on a similar case to yours; however, I'd advise to first update to the latest version 5.8.6 to see if this helps! If not, here is a suggestion that may help! 


On Download Center if you select Linux Type: Fedora, under the Download button there is the following text: "Zoom's rpm packages are signed with a GPG key. Please run "rpm --import" to import the key in case package management utility asks for a missing public key."


You can try running the command and see if the new version of the package is signed again. 


$ rpm -qpi ~/Downloads/zoom_x86_64.rpm | egrep '^Source|Signature'  
Signature   : RSA/SHA1, Mon 29 Nov 2021 07:38:12 AM CET, Key ID b903bf1861a7c71d
Source RPM  : zoom-



Let me know if this helps!

Hi @RN , I have the same problem with the OpenSuse package.

When I installed version 5.10.4 (after importing the signing key) I got this:

   Package header is not signed!

zoom- (Plain RPM files cache): Signature verification failed [6-File is unsigned]

I then ran the command you suggested, to verify the presence of a signature, and here's the result:

~ >  rpm -qpi ~/Downloads/zoom_openSUSE_x86_64.rpm | egrep '^Source|Signature' 
Signature   : (none)
Source RPM  : zoom-

Please could you correct the package to include the signature?

Thank you in advance.
