It's been a while since I updated my local Zoneminder setup, which currently still runs 1.36.12. The version can be seen in the user interface, usually somewhere in the top right corner:
And of course this can also be verified on the command line, looking at the installed package:
root@zm:~# dpkg -l zoneminder
|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name Version Architecture Description
ii zoneminder 1.36.12-bullseye1 amd64 video camera security and surveillance solution
However when I wanted to update Zoneminder (and generall the OS packages), I ran into an error related to the Zoneminder repositories:
root@zm:~# apt-get update
W: An error occurred during the signature verification. The repository is not updated and the previous index files will be used. GPG error: https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release-1.36 bullseye/ Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8C670C86F88B031
W: Failed to fetch https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/release-1.36/bullseye/Release.gpg The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY A8C670C86F88B031
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
The previous GPG key, used to sign the zoneminder package, has expired in the meantime. A new key (archive-keyring.gpg) was placed on the repository server in January 2023. This new key needs to be placed into the list of trusted APT gpg keys:
root@zm:~# wget -O - https://zmrepo.zoneminder.com/debian/archive-keyring.gpg | sudo tee /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/zmrepo.asc
The repository update should now work again:
root@zm:~# apt-get update
Hit:1 http://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye InRelease
Hit:2 http://deb.debian.org/debian-security bullseye-security InRelease

And I can upgrade zoneminder, either by upgrading just the zoneminder package:
root@zm:~# apt-get install zoneminder
Or by upgrading all packages:
root@zm:~# apt-get dist-upgrade
