+The behaviour of the verification can be controlled by the command line

+In case of C<main> (the default) verification is required only for

+subsidiary repositories will not result in an error.
+Finally, in the case of C<all>, all repositories need to be signed.
+In all cases when a signature is checked and fails to verify, an error

-The attempted verification can be suppressed entirely by specifying
-C<--verify-repos=none> on the command line, or a line
-C<verify-repos = none> in a C<tlmgr> config file (see L<CONFIGURATION

 Cryptographic verification requires checksum checking (described just
 above) to succeed, and a working GnuPG (C<gpg>) program (see below for
