How to solve the “changed its ‘Origin’ value from ‘Google, Inc.’ to ‘Google LLC’” APT error
If you’re on Debian or Ubuntu and using Google official repositories for Google Chrome Remote Desktop, you might have received the following error while updating your system.
E: Repository ‘http://dl.google.com/linux/chrome-remote-desktop/deb stable Release’ changed its ‘Origin’ value from ‘Google, Inc.’ to ‘Google LLC’
N: This must be accepted explicitly before updates for this repository can be applied. See apt-secure(8) manpage for details.
The error is quite self-explanatory, sharing that Google changes the name of the company owning the APT repository from Google Inc to Google LLC. This change reflects the new corporate and group structure of Alphabet (the parent company of Google) and also impacted the Play Store few months back.
Well, backstory apart, there’s an easy fix. Just run
sudo apt update
And you will be prompted to accept the new Origin of the repository
Do you want to accept these changes and continue updating from this repository? [y/N]
And that’s it.
