Description Olliver Schinagl 2011-12-28 14:33:35 UTC
When running sa-update it complains about not being able to write it's key files:

7of9 spamassassin # sa-update --import GPG.KEY
gpg: keyblock resource `/etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-update-keys/secring.gpg': No such file or directory
gpg: keyblock resource `/etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-update-keys/pubring.gpg': No such file or directory
gpg: no writable keyring found: Unknown system error
gpg: error reading `GPG.KEY': General error
gpg: import from `GPG.KEY' failed: General error

Creating the directory /etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-update-keys fixes that, and chmod 700 also removes a warning.
gpg: WARNING: unsafe permissions on homedir `/etc/mail/spamassassin/sa-update-keys'

Creating this directory and setting proper permissions on it, should have been done by the ebuild during installation.

Reproducible: Always

Please reopen if this is still an issue with current spamassassin.
Comment 2 Luke Bratch 2014-11-14 10:26:30 UTC
This is still an issue in the current stable in portage (mail-filter/spamassassin-3.3.2-r5).
Comment 3 Olliver Schinagl 2015-03-21 23:12:37 UTC

I just fixed this in spamassassin-3.4.1-r3:
