Hi all,

Bug symptom is triggered simply by

M-x package-list-packages RET
M-x list-packages RET

A buffer with a listing of packages opens, but then an *Error* buffer opens
with the following information:

Failed to verify signature archive-contents.sig:
Bad signature from 474F05837FBDEF9B GNU ELPA Signing Agent <address@hidden>
Command output:
gpg: Signature made 05/01/19 23:10:02 W. Europe Daylight Time
gpg: using DSA key CA442C00F91774F17F59D9B0474F05837FBDEF9B gpg: BAD signature from "GNU ELPA Signing Agent <address@hidden>" [unknown]

This is on a “fresh install” on Windows 10 after extracting from the zip archive
retrieved from

Some further details of the context are available at
There I was advised this is a bug and should be reported.

Thanks and kind regards,
