I've been following the instructions here:
but it seems the command for importing the GPG key for the freshrpms
repository has stopped working:

 ~ $ rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt
error: http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt: import read
By "the webpage instructions" I assume you mean
under "Getting started" where it says:
Since Red Hat Linux 8.0, rpm handles package signature checking
internally. This is why you should feed rpm the public keys used to sign
the packages you want to install. This can be easily done by downloading
the RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms file above then running :
rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms
But when I execute this I get:
root at PuteA Wed Nov 08 07:55:57
 ~ $ rpm --import RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms
error: RPM-GPG-KEY-freshrpms: import read failed(-1).
So maybe someone can tell me what are these "website instructions" I
need to "actually read"?
Thanks for the help!
