GnuPG is reflecting old version even after installing new version
Closed, InvalidPublic



We recently upgraded the GnuPG version from 2.0.14 to 2.0.30 in our linux
server. But its still reflecting the older version when I check it.



Event Timeline

To investigate, we need more information. What OS are you using, how did you
install 2.0.14, how did you install 2.0.30, and what exactly do you mean by
"reflecting the older version"?

I'm using RedHat Linux which already had a version of GnuPG installed. (2.0.14)
I'm not sure what process was used to install it. I downloaded the latest
tar-ball of GnuPG Stable 2.0.30 and installed it as per the process described in
the "HOW-TO". But when I check for the version using gpg --version, it gives me
the older version 2.0.14 instead of 2.0.30. Also , there were no errors while I
installed 2.0.30 either in compilation or installation. I'm not sure why the
--version command is still displaying the old version then.

So you installed GnuPG from source. If you didn't specify a --prefix during the
configure phase, it will be installed to /usr/local. Check that /usr/local/bin
is in PATH. Check what 'type -a gpg' says.

I'm sorry, but this is not a GnuPG problem, and helping you with installing
software on Linux is out of scope for us.
