To whom it may concern:

I have been getting messages like the following fairly frequently the last
couple days:

./tlmgr: signature verification error of /tmp/u9ddx8hJ1T/4mcBh8Y3Tf from
cryptographic signature verification of
failed. Output was
gpg: Signature made Wed May 29 23:39:33 2019 UTC using RSA key ID 19438C70
gpg: BAD signature from "TeX Live Distribution <tex-live at>"

Please report to texlive at

I can usually install the desired packages after a couple of attempts, but
I thought I might as well report it.

I'm just using the default texlive installer from without
changing any of the settings myself. Building the attached Dockerfile fails
frequently on the last step (but not all of the time).

Best regards,
Daniel Abercrombie
