Its signature is invalid. Maybe you have configured your 'urllist' with a bad URL. Please check this array with 'o conf urllist', and retry. This is RedHat EL4 server with Perl v5.8.5

Thanks for the report! The first thing I would try is to manually upgrade Module::Signature and if this doesn't help, remove it. Both are just workarounds, but at least one of the two should get you going again and I'd like to know how it helps. -- andreas

Thanks for your very prompt response! I manually updated the Module::Signature module as you suggested and that seems to have "fixed" the problem...rather, let just say that it fixed it enough that I was able to get other packages installed :) Again, thanks a lot!
